Companionship services have always been a very popular service at EDS Homecare.

This style of service is designed to bring the outside world in for the person.

Companionship services are tailored to meet everyone's individual needs, including their interests and the range of activities they enjoy.

Companionship calls are naturally longer in nature than those for ‘Everyday Care’ and are routinely scheduled for a minimum of once a week. However, companionship calls are available every day of the week.

We suggest a couple of hours for these visits, but they are always tailored to the person and can be for many hours at a time.

We provide support with companionship including, but not limited to, the following activities:

  • Shopping Trips: weekly food shopping, general house supplies, clothes shopping or even Christmas shopping
  • Appointments: company/assistance of a carer, plus the transport to and from the appointment destination
  • Lifestyle Commitments: attending places of worship, the hairdresser, the gym
  • Activities: going for coffee, cinema, swimming, football matches, garden centres and much more
  • Scenic Drives: destinations and routes chosen by the person – often enjoying an ice-cream or fish and chips along the way
  • Home Companionship: general company and conversation at home, baking, batch cooking, knitting, gardening, singing, piano playing, art and much more
