Here’s just one great review of our companion care services in Basingstoke:
“Our family are extremely grateful for how well you looked after Mum. All her carers were lovely and cheerful companions, and she was very fond of them. You took good care of all the small but important details, so we were always confident that Mum was safe and comfortable. In addition, the “big-hearted” team at Right at Home went above and beyond on many occasions to make sure Mum was looked after and had everything she needed. In fact, you didn’t just look after her – you cared about her. We appreciated how you responded to Mum’s growing needs and at each stage provided the additional support and number of visits required to continue care seamlessly.”
What are the benefits of companionship and support?
Companionship can allow you to regain or enable your independence by getting out in the community and boosting your self-esteem.

Our CareGivers are available to support however and whenever they are needed. Companion care can help you take the first steps towards meeting new people, rediscovering old hobbies or taking up new interests.
Most importantly, we aim to match our CareGivers and Clients so they share interests and personality traits. This way, both can benefit from a genuine friendship, built on trust and mutual understanding.
