Society today has made it easier than ever to communicate with friends and family all over the world, but we tend to forget about our elderly generation, many of whom are unfamiliar with digital technology.
As we get older through no fault of our own our social networks often fall apart, leaving us alone, with only our television, radio or pets to keep us company. A fear of falling over may prevent us from getting out and about on our own, and if we are unable to drive, we can quickly start to feel as though we are prisoners in our own homes.
Sometimes care and support isn’t about essential help with everyday tasks, what is more important is living our lives the way we want to, doing the things we love.
Having someone to talk to, and interact with can literally make our day. Knowing that someone is coming to spend time with us gives us a sense purpose, something to look forward to whether we are going out for a coffee or to a club or just reminiscing on days gone by with a good old chat.
We know how busy life is these days and people don’t always have the time to pop by, this is where Home Care Assist can help. We can provide a tailored support package to offer a much-needed companion, whether it be with help with household tasks or just someone their to talk to and share interests and a cup of tea.
Here is a few of our typical activities our companionship carers can do.
