We understand the importance of companionship care
Committed support from a trusted companion
In later life many of us may find ourselves spending most of our days alone, maybe through losing a spouse through death or divorce or through other circumstances that limit our ability to travel and stay connected with family, friends and the community. Companionship care allows independent individuals to remain living in their own home, surrounded by all its familiarity and continuing in their accustomed lifestyle with extra support from a live in carer.
A suitably matched live in carer will provide support in keeping mentally and physically healthy by engaging in conversation and chosen activities. In fact, recent studies have revealed that keeping active can dramatically reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s and the assurance from another person being present can also reduce stress and provide peace of mind for loved ones.
Developing long lasting relationships
It is important to build good strong relationships, so to ensure continuity of care, we provide 2 -3 live in carers to an individual, who will alternate, providing cover for breaks, sickness, holidays etc.
