Why is companionship important?


Companionship can have huge benefits to the mental and physical health and wellbeing of a person. Social interaction can be an important factor in preventing isolation and loneliness in the elderly.

At Right at Home Colchester, we recognise the value of having a friendly and trusted visitor to talk to. Our homecare support team go beyond helping with daily activities. When it comes to companionship, our Carers in Colchester always aim to put a smile on someone’s face. 

What are the benefits of companionship and support?


Companionship can allow you to regain or enable your independence by getting out in the community and boosting your self-esteem. 

Our Clients love to experience community life in Colchester, including  a visit to Highwoods Country Park.

Our CareGivers are available to support however and whenever they are needed. Companion care can help you take the first steps towards meeting new people, rediscovering old hobbies or taking up new interests.

Most of all, we aim to match our CareGivers and Clients so they share interests and personality traits. In doing so, both can benefit from a genuine friendship, built on trust and mutual understanding.

Most of all, our CareGivers are there to listen. Private companion services can prevent feelings of isolation and loneliness, which can have a big impact on a person’s health.

What is the difference between a companion and a CareGiver?

Our expert CareGivers provide specific services, such as personal care, specialist care, and support for elderly people. 

Care companions are often able to provide these services, but their primary purpose is to support Clients with day-to-day activities, whilst spending time with a trusted friend. 

What does companion care cost?

The cost of our companion care will depend on the needs of each Client. We calculate costs based on the number of hours of care provided.

Please contact our Colchester -based team to discuss the level of care you require. We can then provide an accurate cost of care.
