The effect of well being in relationship with other people is enormous; we are social beings, and good companionship can have huge benefits on our health; social interaction and replacing loneliness lifts our spirits in so many ways. However the restrictions and barriers we face with ageing can make relationships difficult and increase loneliness.
it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years. Abraham Lincoln
Providing you with a Social Companion can have a direct effect on your mental and physical well being, whether as a home visit or accompanying support. There are so many different ways you could use your time together: How about lunch or afternoon tea, a trip to the garden centre or the theatre or if you belong to a faith community, accompaniment to a religious gatherings. The list is endless and if non of that ‘doing’ grabs you, its enough just to sit and have a cuppa and a catch up.
Furthermore, adjusting your requirements going forward couldn’t be simpler. Using our Digital Care Planning technology and our ‘Live Team’ you can make instant adjustments using your computer or if you prefer the telephone. This way you can be confident of a responsive and evolving service, meeting the outcomes you want from the companionship you receive.
All the information for your support is stored digitally, in our Digital Care Plan, which is accessible to you, the ‘Live Team’, and with your permission, your family. This way details of the care plan, including arrival and leaving times, tasks completed, and the outcomes we have monitored, can be seen and observed by everyone. It’s easy for you or your family to communicate any concerns or changes instantly, on your computer or by telephone, ensuring that by our next call your changes can be made. This way you remain in control and at the heart of all we do. Whether you live far away or close by, loved ones can have peace of mind that you are receiving the companionship you expected.
