Did you know that there are approximately 1.4 million chronically lonely older people in England and across the UK?
Here at The Care Advantage, we believe everyone deserves to feel connected and cared for, no matter their age. No one deserves to feel lonely.
That’s why we offer companionship care: professional, private and personalised care provided in the comfort of your home. While our companionship carers can keep depression, isolation and loneliness at bay, we’re also here to just pop in and say hello, ask how you are, and provide company.
We’re here to lend a listening ear, share thoughts and feelings, and have fun together. We’re here to bring joy to your life and help you continue doing the things you love.
Read on to learn more about companionship care across Suffolk, Essex, and Greater London – and how your companionship carer can help you enjoy life.
1. Meaningful connections matter
As social creatures, having someone you can trust, laugh with through life’s ups and downs, and enjoy the little everyday things with is important for wellbeing. We take the time to get to know you, your interests, your personality and your values so that we match you with someone you can build a relationship.
2. That holiday spirit
Holidays are generally a time when you feel most relaxed, carefree and at peace. Your companionship carer can help you capture that feeling all year round. From encouraging you to try new things to ensuring you continue enjoying the old, we can help add that colour, zest and spark back into life.
3. Spice up your life
Is there anything new you want to try but you don’t know how to get started or perhaps you haven’t quite mustered up the courage to give it a go? Our warm and friendly companionship carers can offer the practical and emotional support to get you out there. We’ll help you join new hobby groups, meet new people or finally join that dance class! From reading books to getting out in nature to rooting for your favourite football team together, we’ll help you try new activities or continue doing the things you love with confidence.
No matter your age, self-care is an important part of emotional wellbeing and leading a happy life. Yet we understand how difficult it can be to make space for it or even get started when you’re feeling overwhelmed. With the compassionate support of your companionship carer, you can make space for what feels good for you.
5. Reduce stress
Life can be pretty stressful sometimes. With a companionship carer by your side, you don’t have to go through it alone. We’ll take the stress out of appointments, meetings and even connecting with your wider support network. Consider us your ally, advocate and biggest cheerleader. Rest assured, you’ve got a friend in us.
