Thinking of becoming a carer?


Sometimes we just need a bit of encouragement or someone to engage with in order to maintain our emotional health, which is so important for our physical health. With family not always nearby or to help fulfil this need, our local carers – who we’ve hand-picked and trained ourselves at our Twickenham branch, for their empathy, kindness and patience – are delighted to step in.

“Companionship care is a great option for those who live alone or far away from their family, providing much needed contact, engagement and mental stimulation as and when it’s needed. We have found it’s often a lifeline for our clients who may not be able to go out, giving them someone to look forward to interacting with on a regular basis and improving their wellbeing.”

Companionship for emotional well-being

As we’re a family run local provider, we’re close to and part of every client’s care and support plans, making sure they meet both their needs and those of the family. We take the time to find out what our clients used to love doing but may have lost the opportunity to experience. Whether that was going to concerts, the theatre or simply a game of scrabble, we’ll help to reconnect them with that passion again.

It’s so important too for family to know that their loved ones are being looked after, not just on a physical level but on an emotional level too, providing them with some respite but also peace of mind. To give you an idea, the types of activities that companionship care may involve include:

“If stimulated and engaged mentally, our physical problems are less likely to have such an impact on us. We think it’s so important to address the emotional needs; those of belonging and community, as when these are satisfied, we’re less prone to depression that leads to further physical deterioration”
