Our befriending service combats loneliness

befriending

We offer a popular befriending/companionship service where we provide regular company to your loved one which may help reduce feelings of isolation and loneliness.

Busy lives can put a strain on seeing loved ones as much as we would like to. Do you worry that a loved one is spending too much time alone and wish you could devote more time to them? For this reason we offer companionship services, in which we spend time with your loved ones making sure they are OK and generally just have a nice time together! How we spend our time is up to you or if you like we can make suggestions to fill the time and bring some enjoyment to the day. This may include doing things such as:

  • Friendly conversation and companionship
  • Arranging appointments
  • Help with travel arrangements
  • Assist with clothing selection
  • Assist with entertaining
  • Help with reading
  • Participate in hobbies and crafts
  • Monitor diet and eating
  • Buy newspapers, magazines and books
  • Rent and play films
  • Plan visits, outings and trips
  • Visit neighbours and friends
  • Accompany to lunch or dinner

Our carers often form great friendships with our clients and spending time together doing what brings happiness to your loved ones day is a pleasure. If you have any questions about our companionship service please call us on 01254 658899 where we will be happy to help.
