The comfort we feel in our home is like no other. It is the place that you feel most relaxed and happy. However, as family members grow up and move in to their own homes, you may find your house isn’t as busy as it once was, and there aren’t as many people around to give you that extra hand when you need it.
Spectrum Healthccare companionship service gives you the support you need to live independently, providing you with the assistance of a Healthcare Assistant or Support Worker at times to suit your convenience.
Our social companionship service is most suited to individuals who will benefit from having the reassurance that someone is there with them to offer support when it is needed. It also provides peace of mind for family members who are unable to regularly visit, as they know their loved one is being cared for.
Our Carers, who are carefully selected to match your personality and requirements, will provide company and conversation, as well as providing support with household and social activities. Your service is tailored to your requirements and can be adapted to meet your changing needs. We will also arrange for you to meet your Carer before your care package commences to ensure that you are happy.
What is Included in the Service?
As part of our social companionship service, your Carer will spend time with you, whether that is spent sitting and chatting, looking through old family albums, watching television, or going out for short walks, they will be able to provide the company and reassurance that you need. Having someone to sit and reminisce with may be just the thing you need to brighten up your day.
If you have reduced independence, our Carers can assist you with light housekeeping tasks, such as dusting, vacuuming, washing, ironing, and changing bed linen. In addition, they can support with meal preparation, taking into account your food preferences and desired meal times. They can also assist with your food shopping where required.
If you have trouble keeping track of what you need to do and when, your Carer can support you with your daily routine. They can provide you with reminders to do things, such as when to take your medication, to attend Doctors appointments, to write Birthday cards, to feed the dog and many other useful things that help you to remain independent.
Day Trips Out
In addition to helping you with short day-to-day outings, your Carer will be happy to accompany you on day trips, allowing you and your family to relax, safe in the knowledge that you are getting the personal attention you require whilst out on your trip.
Whether you are planning a trip to a museum or a trip to a local park, our Carers will support you whilst you are out of your home. They can also assist you with making travel arrangements and transporting mobility equipment, should you need it.
