Companionship Services at Home

Families naturally lead busy lives with numerous responsibilities; often people live long distances from loved ones all of which adds to the challenge of ensuring the risk of an older person experiencing loneliness is reduced. At Premier Homecare we appreciate loneliness can facilitate a difficult cycle of behaviour. An older person who might once have been confident and independent, but has found themselves in an isolated situation, may become withdrawn and wary of other people after prolonged periods of minimal contact with anyone. Loneliness can lead to depression and anxiety, and even affect physical health. The value of companionship care services therefore, can never be underestimated.

A Premier Homecare Companion Carer is there to become a ‘professional friend’ to whoever they are caring for, whilst enjoying day to day responsibilities and activities together. Having a Companion Carer is often about just someone to talk to, whether that is about day to day things, the latest news, reminiscing about the past, discussing films and books, or even chatting about family history. A Companion Carer will also offer help with travel arrangements, assist with journeys to and from appointments, and accompany a person to visits with family, friends, and neighbours. Other activities could include watching films together, planning interesting outings and trips, and taking advantage of any other exciting opportunity that will allow an elderly person to enjoy themselves…Companionship Care Services can therefore be incredibly important in helping a person to continue to enjoy the things in life important to them by keeping feelings of loneliness and isolation at bay.
