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.
Team24 Private Nursing’s’ social companionship service gives you the support you need to live independently; providing you with the assistance of a Nurse, Healthcare Assistant or Support Worker at times to suit you.
The 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.
Team24 staff are carefully selected to match your personality and requirements, will provide company and conversation as well as providing practical support with household and social activities. Your service is tailored to your requirements and can be adapted to meet your changing needs. We will arrange for you to meet the staff member before your package commences to ensure that the match is suitable.
What is Included in the Service?
As part of the social companionship service, your carer will spend time with you undertaking the activities that you enjoy. Whether that time is spent sitting and chatting, shopping, watching television, or going out for short walks, they will be able to provide the company and reassurance that you require. 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, attend Doctors appointments, write correspondence, 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 accompany you on day trips, allowing you and your family to relax safe in the knowledge that have 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.
Wherever possible, we will encourage you to engage in social activities. That may be to attend a local club, or to meet with friends for a chat and a cup of tea. Your carer will be on hand to support you whenever needed.
