Companionship Care Services in Essex, UK
One of the most difficult, and saddest, aspects of getting older is the potential for isolation and loneliness. Even if you feel physically fine, old friendships can disappear and family members may have moved away. Loneliness is one of the biggest issues facing many elderly people across the UK.
That is why companion care services can help overcome this chronic loneliness and help make a positive change in people’s lives. Our companionship service is designed to ensure the elderly have someone on hand to help, as well as provide them with a sympathetic ear whenever needed.
What are Home Companions?
Home companions are professional caregivers who come from a non-medical background and who offer assistance to the elderly and disabled at home. They can help with a range of daily activities such as cooking, cleaning and transport to and from appointments. In addition, they are there to provide companionship to those who may not have many people in their life to rely on.
Services can be customised to fit the needs of each individual, whether they need hourly visits, weekend visits, overnight stays or 24/7 live-in care. In the end, they will provide as much care as the individual requires.
Types of Companion Care We Offer
When it comes to companion care there are a number of ways that we can provide support:
- Managing basic household tasks such as cooking meals or providing clean sheets for the bed. Carers can help each elderly person with any task to improve their quality of life.
- Help with running errands such as visits to the shops, picking up mail or providing transport to and from appointments. Our carers can provide the support each individual needs to fulfil their daily tasks.
- Sharing in an individual’s favourite hobbies and activities, or even helping them take up new hobbies they may have always wanted to try.
- Taking individuals to social events such as family gatherings or visits to friends, or just providing companionship during days out.
