Companionship

What is the Companionship Care?

Companionship gives you the support you need to live independently in your own home, providing you with the assistance of a companion at times to suit your convenience. Companionship is most suited to individuals who want someone available to offer support when it is needed, and it also provides peace of mind for family members who are unable to visit regularly.

No matter how many hours of companionship you want, hourly or 24-7, short or long term, the companions that we introduce to you are carefully selected to match your personality, needs and preferences, to provide company, conversation, administration of medication, support with household and social activities etc.
