Companionship And Shopping
Through our companion care services, you’ll never feel alone with a CareAngel by your side bringing welcome companion care, and often the shopping too.
Chatting to a neighbour, meeting a friend for a coffee at the local park, gathering with the family for a Sunday roast. These might seem like ordinary events, but these moments connect us to others, make us smile, feel part of the tapestry of humanity.
Keeping those connections going becomes harder as mobility gets affected or care needs increase. Our companionship care services bridge that gap so that whatever your social need, we can be a caring friend to you.
Companion Care Services With A Smile
Never without a warm smile, our CareAngels are a familiar, friendly face for our elderly companion, or more complex health at-home care clients. They brighten days and make our home and elderly companion care an enjoyable experience.
Your CareAngel will pop in to see you for a catch-up and offer some help around the house to get a few things done. They’ll know how you like your tea, fluff up the cushions and sit down with you for a chat for an hour or two. Just as if you were their own family.
” I do not think I have ever seen a carer not have a smile on their face and they always have a can-do attitude. I think if I had to find the answer it is that they treat my mum as their nan and not just another ‘client’. Daughter of an Elderly Companion Care Client.

Home And Community Care That Keeps Things Human
For many, our home care and elderly companion care services are a wonderful way to keep things human and enjoy some good company.
Our companionship care and elderly companion services make time for your CareAngels to be there. There’s no rush; they’re there to care, to chat, to connect. So, as soon as the shopping’s unloaded, you get to sit down and enjoy a cuppa together to talk companionably about your day, and theirs.
Keeping You Company With Home And Community Care
Our companionship care is both home and community care. It means just that. Your CareAngel will help you to keep in touch with family, talk to friends, and get out into your community.
All are safe drivers who can get you to, and keep you company at, appointments, family occasions and catch-ups with friends. Your CareAngels will be able to help you to stay involved with your interest groups and even support you to take up new ones.
Home And Community Care With A Little Extra Help
Separately your CareAngels companions are happy to take on some of the domestic tasks. Home and senior care options can range from getting your shopping, picking up prescriptions or even walking the dog (yes, we’re good friends to them too!).
And, we know that you like we’ll go to your favourite shops to get the food you enjoy, the clothes you like to wear and the health and beauty products you like to use. And, if there’s a special occasion to buy for we can help with that too.

Losing A Life Companion And Getting Some Friendly Support
Losing a spouse or long-term partner will leave a big gap in your life, and the comfort of company. Loneliness may be an overwhelming feeling. Our CareAngel companions can be there to keep you company and help prevent you from feeling isolated.
It is also a great comfort to family members knowing that you have someone there for you, and to talk to, when they can’t be there, or live far away.
Companionship Is The Start Of A Caring Friendship
Companionship care positively introduces the concept of home care. Our CareAngels can get established and should the need for more care be needed over time, you and your family are ready, familiarised and supported.
We’ve got to know each other, how you like things done and trust has developed between your family and us that will make that transition easier.
Companionship is a pro-active way to enhance and improve the quality of your life and lifestyle. And with our CareAngels by your side you will feel encouraged, positive about care, and able to live independently at home where you’re happiest.
