Companionship care services to support you to live-well in your own home
Premier Community provide a wide range of companionship care services to help you to live a fulfilling life in the comfort of your own home.
What is Companionship Care?
Often overlooked, loneliness can have serious effects on a person’s health and well-being. Issues with mobility or family living far away can mean that it’s difficult to see friends and family regularly. Bereavement from a partner or family members can also find people struggling to adjust to living alone. Care services can offer regular companionship with friendly visits from Support Workers.
The number of over-50s experiencing loneliness is set to reach two million by 2025/6. This compares to around 1.4 million in 2016/7 – a 49% increase in 10 years (Age UK 2018, All The Lonely People)
How can Premier Community help?
Everyone is different and has different needs and priorities. Therefore, in our first meeting together, we begin the process of listening carefully to you, and if you would like your family as well, to discover what sort of support meets your needs. We will also carry out a care assessment and risk assessment as necessary. When we have all the information we need we then tailor make your unique care plan.
All the information for your support is stored digitally, in our Digital Care Plan, which is accessible to you, the ‘Live Team’, and with your permission, your family. This way details of the care plan, including arrival and leaving times, tasks completed, and the outcomes we have monitored, can be seen and observed by everyone. It’s easy for you or your family to communicate any concerns or changes instantly, on your computer or by telephone, ensuring that by our next visit your changes can be made. Also This way you remain in control and at the heart of all we do. Whether you live far away or close by, loved ones can have peace of mind that you are receiving the companionship support you expected.
