Companionship is a basic human need and is the feeling of closeness with another person. Loneliness within the senior community has become a growing issue over the years. Many of our elders have been affected by the pandemic, unable to see their family and friends or even pop down to the shops.
At Heritage Healthcare, our goal is to enable our clients to continue living independently, allowing them to stay at home safely for longer. Our Carers are highly trained and can provide bespoke services; we work with our clients and their family members to create a care plan tailored to each individual’s needs.
Companionship services provide a trusted, friendly face to talk to and share interests with. Having someone to talk to can be very important when living alone, helping to keep the mind active and prevent feelings of loneliness and social isolation.
A companion can simply be someone to share a cup of tea with and talk about the news, or someone to stroll around the garden centre and attend local events with. Whether it’s breakfast at the local café or an afternoon spent learning a new skill, we provide our clients with a friendly companion to share those experiences with.
Our companionship services can assist with:
- Discussing current affairs
- Reminiscing about past events and memories
- Visiting family and friends
- Participating in hobbies and crafts
- Accompanying to the local shops
- Visiting local attractions and events
- Going out for breakfast, lunch or dinner
Our companionship service aims to enable our clients to be more involved with their community and continue to enjoy activities with independence and safety.
