Companion Care

Elderly people inevitably lose family members and lifetime friends as they age, which can leave them feeling isolated and without anyone to talk to. While older people are the most vulnerable to social isolation, other groups are at risk as well. Our companion carers have varied life experiences, which allows them to empathise and communicate effectively.

Mobility issues can make it difficult to get out and participate in activities, and people on low incomes may simply be unable to afford the bus fare or social clubs that would allow them to get out and talk to others. However, loneliness does not discriminate and can affect anyone.

Our companion care varies greatly from person to person, but the goal is generally to reduce or prevent loneliness in an elderly person who might otherwise become isolated. This type of care can range from several hours per day to just a few hours per week, and it can make a significant difference in the day-to-day outlook of someone who would otherwise be completely alone.

Loneliness is a major issue because it can lead to depression and aggravate illnesses and conditions. People live for social interaction, whether they are introverts or extroverts, and the network of friends and family that surrounds them helps them feel valued and supported.


The primary goal of our companion care is support with socialisation, though companions may assist older adults with a variety of tasks, such as:

  • Housekeeping
  • Other household chores include laundry and dishwashing.
  • Grocery shopping and other errands
  • Making plans for appointments and social activities
  • Transportation to and from appointments and other events.
  • Meal preparation
  • Socialisation and recreation
  • Communicating with family members and other members of the care team
