Companionship and social support

Due to mobility restrictions and other factors, life can sometimes be isolating and lonely for older adults, particularly if there are no family and friends living close by, or when loved ones have passed away.

We’ve found that instead of a high level of support, some people benefit simply from time with a companion. Whether it is company at various activities or just a chat, companionship can make a real difference to someone’s day.

Over the years we have seen that spending time with an interested companion is as beneficial as a therapy session. People often feel revitalised and energised after spending quality time with someone who understands them and shares the same interests. CareChoice matches a carer to each person needing care or assistance.

Some activities that can be enjoyed with a companion include (but are not exclusive to):

  • crafts or hobbies
  • playing cards or board games
  • a trip to the library
  • going on an outing – shopping, cup of tea or coffee
  • attending a day service or community event
  • attending religious events or places of worship
  • participation in social clubs – bowls, Probus, community centres, etc.

If you feel you could or someone you know would benefit from companionship, CareChoice can help.  Call us today to find out how we can help change your life for the better.
