Many people we support simply want company and conversation, whether they live alone and cannot see their family and friends as often as they would like, or if they are recently bereaved and are finding it hard to adjust. Loneliness can have serious effects on a person’s health and Focus on Care aims to prevent loneliness through companionship care.
From giving you a hand with the weekly shop, accompanying you to your doctor’s appointment or to your favourite social group or event, companionship is simply being there for you or your loved one. If you need someone to make sure you’re eating healthily or just fancy popping out for lunch, Focus on Care are there for you. We believe that age isn’t a barrier to adventure. We’ve also had a huge amount of success in helping older people start something new. Many of our clients have taken up new hobbies such as learning to dance, play instruments, knit and cook specialist dishes. If there’s something new you’d like to start, or an old passion you’d like to revisit, we can match you to the right person to help you achieve this.
Our companionship services may cover a wide range of activities where we are able to provide support, for example:
The aim of our companionship services is to ensure that you or your loved ones can lead happy, healthy and stimulating lives in the comfort of their own home or residence.
I have worked for Focus on Care for many years. I love my job - no two shifts are ever the same and I enjoy this. I especially enjoy seeing clients stay as independent as possible in their own homes. I feel really supported within my job role and have lots of interesting training available to me.
