Companionship Carers and Chaperone Services
For many people, their care needs are not necessarily to do with the practicalities of life but more to do with providing them with company and conversation. Companionship carers can help people who may live alone and cannot see their family and friends as often as you like, or perhaps those who are recently bereaved and are finding it hard to adjust on their own, or maybe a companionship carer is needed to provide someone to talk to or to accompany someone to the shops or for a coffee.
In 2016, it was estimated that there were 1.2 million chronically lonely older people in the UK, which is expected to reach 2 million by 2025 – a 49% increase.
At Ashwell Home Care Services, we understand that making and maintaining relationships is important to prevent you from becoming isolated in your own home.
