What is Companionship Care?

Companionship is the company of another person whom you enjoy spending time with such as your carefully matched Care Professional.

Companionship Care can:

  • Help you or your loved one to keep active

  • Make sure you or your loved one have company and someone to socialise with

  • Help to build confidence in going outside the home

  • Encourage participation in activities inside and outside the home

  • Help families take a rest from caring with peace of mind

Why is Companionship Care important?

Loneliness can have serious effects on a person’s health and Home Instead aims to prevent social isolation by providing companionship care at home. Many people we support simply want company and conversation, whether they live alone and may not see family and friends as often as they would like, or just want a companion when going out to appointments or to do the shopping.
