Why is Companionship Important to our Health?

We never outgrow our need for true companionship.
Being young at heart has a lot to do with staying sociable. If you’re in need of some adventure or simply want to get out more, CareCompany’s friendly and experienced companions can help.

Companionship is not a luxury; it is a basic human need that is important for your health and happiness. In fact, studies have shown that spending regular quality time with others helps to keep the mind sharp and healthy.

At the CareCompany, our aim is to support happy, fulfilled lives through sincere and engaged companionship. From driving you to your appointments and helping with cooking, to just spending time with you and everything in between, our staff recognises the value of the human touch.

You don’t have to move into a home for friendship and a sense of community. The CareCompany will come to you and offers flexible and affordable packages, from 2 hours a week all the way up to full-time care.

In your home, Out and about, On your terms, To meet your needs.
