If you’re experiencing loneliness or would benefit from emotional and practical support from a friendly, trusted carer, you may wish to consider companion care from Helping Hands Romford. Companion care is a type of home care designed for those who don’t necessarily need complex medical support or help with personal care, but would simply benefit from a bit of friendly company throughout the week to maintain their mental well-being. At Helping Hands, we’ve been providing dedicated, person-centred companion care to people across England and Wales since 1989, so it’s safe to say we know how to ensure our care is truly meaningful and life-changing.
Whether you’ve been experiencing loneliness for a while, get lonely from time to time, or are at risk of experiencing loneliness, a companion carer can be extremely beneficial for your mental and emotional health. Our visits start from just 30 minutes per week – ideal if you’d just like someone to pop by for a cup of tea and a chat from time to time – and our flexible approach means we can adapt your support if your needs change. As well as the elderly, companion care can be a great option for younger people, as it opens up a wealth of opportunities – your carer can help you attend social events, get to university, commute to work, and live a full, rich life.
At Helping Hands, we know that no two care journeys are identical – especially when it comes to companionship care. That’s why we’ll always take the time to properly understand how we can best support you in your personal circumstances. Your local Romford care manager will visit you in your home and talk through your needs and wishes, so that we can get a good picture of what you’re looking for from a companion, and then we’ll match you with someone who shares your likes, hobbies and interests.
When you opt for companion care from our friendly Romford team, you’ll benefit from the experience and expertise of our wonderful, compassionate carers. We’re very selective about the candidates we recruit – just 2% of applicants make it through our hiring and assessment process, because we only hire people who we know have the right personality and attitude to be truly exceptional in the role. All of our carers receive our industry-leading carer training when they start with us, and will continue to enrol on regular refresher courses so that they’re always up to date with the latest care industry standards and best practices. And, for your added peace of mind, every aspect of your care will be fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales.
