Who will I support?

You will be carefully matched and introduced to the person you will be supporting, and you will share a great relationship together.  Your visits will never be rushed, and they are never less than an hour, meaning you spend quality time with the person we match you with. 

Because you get to know one another well, the care that you would provide is never awkward, just natural. Some people worry about personal care, but people also have the wrong idea what personal care means – if this is something you are unsure about, we can explain this to you once you apply.  

As a Paid Volunteer & Care Companion, the care & support an individual requires varies greatly, after all everyone is unique!  All our clients vary from being very independent to some that need much more care and support.  You could -

  • Arriving with a smile for an early morning call.
  • Preparing breakfast and assist someone with their morning routine whilst chatting away!
  • Assisting with personal care when required.
  • Prompting to take medication.
  • Preparing lunch together, taking care of their nutrition is important.
  • Maybe prompting them to use the toilet, to keep their routine.
  • Going on outings, hospital visits, or visiting the shops.
  • End of the day companionship, hot drink, and chat before bedtime.
