Helping to overcome loneliness
Did you know that, according to Age UK, nearly a million older people in the UK go for more than a month without speaking to anyone? Not only is loneliness and isolation a huge problem, it has also been associated with health issues such as depression, sleep problems, hypertension, stress and mental health problems.
At Safe Care we strongly believe that no one should feel loneliness or isolation, which is why we have created our companionship care service.
Here we look at what Safe Care’s companionship services can offer you and your family:
- Enjoying a chat over a cup of tea or television.
- Company while doing crafts or hobbies.
- Encouraging and helping with exercise where appropriate.
- Using a mobile phone, TV remote control or computer
