What is companionship care?

Companionship care is a form of caregiving centred around offering emotional support, companionship, and aid with daily activities, all aimed at enhancing your self-esteem and overall mental well-being.

Home care goes beyond just addressing your physical needs, as a live-in companion can help with engaging conversation, playing games and going for walks to your favourite park. Continuing to pursue your favourite hobbies and activities can boost your confidence and enhance happiness.

While our carers assist with tasks like preparing your favourite meals or light housekeeping, their primary focus remains on providing friendship and encouragement, facilitating your ability to lead an independent and fulfilling life.

If you or your loved one is experiencing loneliness, our companion care services can deliver numerous benefits and emotional support, improving your wellbeing within the comfort and familiarity of your home.

A trusted companion for the elderly

According to Age UK, the amount of people that experience loneliness is 1.4 million, making it a growing issue in society today. There are many reasons why people can feel lonely, it could be due to losing a lifelong spouse or partner, a situation often accompanied by feelings of loneliness and isolation due to bereavement. Moreover, geographic distance from loved ones increase these emotions, as you are unable to see them as frequent to maintain social connections.

Even if your care needs are minimal, elderly companionship presents many benefits. Our carers offer more than just practical assistance; they serve as a companion, who reduce feelings of isolation by engaging in activities that you enjoy and foster regular social interactions.

By forming a bond with one of our carers, you gain a trusted friend who supports you in leading a happy, fulfilling life right from the comfort of your own home.

Live-in Care

Round-the-clock companionship

Our experienced carers can be a live-in companion, where they will reside within your home, providing you with unrivalled round-the-clock support. This option is particularly suited for those that are experiencing extreme loneliness, but also require assistance with medical needs.

In comparison to hourly care, live-in care offers continuous support that gives you and your loved ones peace of mind that you will receive assistance and companionship whenever required.

Hourly Care

Quality care by the hour

Our hourly companionship care offers flexibility, allowing you to schedule visits from as little as one hour per day, three times a week. Utilising our companionship care services allows time for you to engage in social activities, explore the outdoors and to have your favourite meals cooked.

This cost-effective option can address your preferences, well-being and low care needs whilst incorporating a variety of tasks during each care visit.

Costs of companionship care

The cost of hourly companionship care starts at £29 per hour, while live-in companionship care begins at £1,095 per week. The price will be determined by your specific care needs and the level of companionship desired, a detail that will be discussed and confirmed by your local care manager during our complimentary home care assessment.

As a thank you, we will also refund your setup fee straight back to you after four weeks of receiving our support.

For couples, live-in care has proven to be the financially wiser choice than care homes and in some cases domiciliary care. This is because a small additional fee is added for the other individual, instead of paying for two rooms in a residential care setting.
