This service is perfect for informal carers for example parents, relatives or family members who need the peace of mind knowing that their loved one will be looked after and supported in their absence when they need to leave home to attend personal appointment, meet friends or for grocery and household shopping.
This flexible service can be a one-off arrangement for a couple of hours on a specified day or regular scheduled respite visits to facilitate the carer's breaks

Befriending and Companionship Service
Social isolation has a long term negative impact on the mental health and general wellbeing of the elderly and people with disabilities who cannot attend social clubs or go out to meet with friends due to poor health or other reasons.
We offer a befriending scheme to those who meet our criteria. Please note that we do not offer personal care services (e.g. washing, bathing dressing) when providing a befriending and companionship service to you or your relative.
