Helping service users to continue to live a fulfilling life, in their own home where they feel most comfortable and confident.
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. Loneliness can have serious effects on a person’s mental health and wellbeing, Anderby Care aims to prevent loneliness through companionship care where professional relationships are created.
From giving you a hand with the weekly shop, accompanying you to your doctor’s appointment or to your favourite social group or event, social/companionship is simply being there for you or your loved one. If you need someone to make sure you are eating healthily or just fancy popping out for lunch?
Companionship and social support can also be some form of respite for the other family members in the household, giving them time to run weekly errands or enjoy times of freedom if the service user is very dependable on them.
Typical activities Anderby Care can support include:
- Shopping for food and drink, clothes, or other items you may require
- Going to leisure activities/appointments

- Cinema, theatre, or music Venue
