Companionship care

What is Companionship Care?

Companionship care offers the support you want, when you need it, so you can continue living from the comfort of your own home. With help from as little as an hour a week we can make all the difference.

Companionship care is for anyone who wishes to remain independent in their own home, but wants some company every now and then. With Curant Care you can have a support worker stay with you in your home from as little as an hour at a time providing a ‘friendship’ and a companion for you.

From support with your medication and going to the toilet through to planning and preparing your favourite meal. You may prefer to go out shopping, swimming or fancy a game of tennis! For those of us that prefer a less active life… you may want someone to help with a jigsaw puzzle or a crossword – or even to go with you to take your dog out for a walk. 

We know that asking for help can be difficult at times. But we are here to talk you through the Companionship care options and the full costs. Call us today for an informal chat about our services and how we can support you or your loved one at home.

How Companionship care works?

It can often be difficult to acknowledge that it is time to ask for a little company or support . It may be physical tasks, housekeeping, specific personal care or help following a hospital discharge- whatever your needs, a companion could make all the difference. It needn’t be as daunting as you may think.

Call to discuss the options

First of all, give us a call. Our team speak to hundreds of families each week, understanding their needs and discussing what care services we can provide in return. This is an informal chat – a chance for you to ask the questions you have and allay any fears or preconceptions about asking for help.

Whether you simply require some short-term respite, convalescence or are planning for your long term needs we will have a programme of visits for you to choose from. Carers can visit as frequently as you like, from half an hour calls through to longer “sit” sessions that may take most of the day or even help during the night.

Meet with your local branch manager

The next step is to get together and for you to meet one of our care practitioners. This meeting builds on your earlier discussions and will look at clarifying the level of support required and for you to set your expectations.

What we then do is prepare your individual care plan. This document will detail all of your needs, from medication to mobility, issues and routines. With the flexibility to constantly evolve, this forms the cornerstone of your service.

Our professional care teams work within their own local areas and so there is a strong likelihood that they are already supporting somebody in your village or town already. We will source the right carer for your needs and for added peace of mind, you can meet them before care begins.

Call us today for an informal chat about our visiting care service and how we can support you or your loved one on a regular basis.

How is companion care different?

Unlike home care, having a companion at home with you is like having a family member at home. Your companion will spend time with you, easing loneliness or just being there to partner up with in a game of chess!

Companion care is also completely unique to your needs and requirements – if there are certain aspects of your life that you prefer to do with someone that you can enjoy it with then companion care is ideal for you. 

With the one-to-one support from a companion care worker you can enjoy what matters most to you. With a fully-managed and regulated service, you can be sure that the care you and your family receives is safe and of the highest level.

Who can benefit from companion care?

For personal care needs

Many of the people we care for do need a little support with personal care. From the reassurance that someone is with you right through to full personal care, whatever your need – we can help.

We are there to encourage, prompt and remind you about the things you can still do and want to do for yourself whilst being able to provide full support for the things you can no longer manage. We can support with washing, dressing, continence care, bathing, showering, hair and make-up – whatever you need in order to feel good about yourself.

At Curant Care, we do things your way, to your preferences. And we provide the flexibility of visits from 1hour a day to full-time live-in support. With us, home care and Companion care can easily lessen or grow if or when your needs and wants change.

Care in the home for preventing falls

At Curant Care we believe that prevention is better than cure. Many of our customers are concerned about falling and often this is the cause of great anxiety for them and their families, especially when they live alone. Having a companion coming in during the day and evening is often enough to provide reassurance and company to reduce isolation and to make you less vulnerable and prone to falling. 

Falls are a major concern because of the implications and long-term damage they can have, especially to someone who is already frail. Age UK, the nation’s champions for older people, run an annual campaign to raise awareness about falls. They say, “A fall can destroy confidence, increase isolation and reduce independence.”

Providing help around the house

You may find you are struggling to keep on top of things at home. A companion is perfect to help with the more physical tasks and housekeeping, supporting you with everyday cooking and cleaning as well as laundry and shopping.

Let us take the worry out of these everyday tasks so that you can get on with your day. Call us today to find out how we can help you with visiting care at home.

From family care to professional care

Perhaps you are currently supported by family, friends or neighbours and your needs have increased. It is often at this stage that our customers come to us in order to put care arrangements in place.

A survey run by Carers Week found that two in five unpaid carers are putting off medical treatment to care for a loved one. We can support you to readdress the balance. What’s more, your family can remain as involved as you want them to be while one of our professional carers regularly visits to meet your requirements.

The benefit of companions and  live-in care services, is that family can take a step back and have a well-deserved break. We can support with short regular visits or longer sits, maybe for a whole afternoon or overnight. We can even provide live-in respite care, on a temporary basis.

From the moment you contact our team, we’ll help you find the best home care solution to suit your needs. Call us today to find out more.

After a hospital discharge

The urgent need for care is often placed upon families when a discharge from hospital is reliant on having the appropriate level of care and support in place.

We have local care specialist’s who can react quickly in these situations and arrange for a care worker to help with recuperation, convalescence and rehabilitation. Liaising with the hospital discharge team and other care professionals involved on your behalf, they can arrange for a safe and prompt return home.

Fully trained and regulated by the Care Quality Commission, one of our care workers will work alongside district nurses and occupational therapists when health can be at its most fragile, building confidence and strength day-by-day. We can even assist in facilitating a discharge home from hospital by ensuring that any equipment or modifications to the house are in place.

Call us today to find out more about how we can help with yours or your loved one’s hospital discharge.

For dementia care at home

We understand the very specific daily challenges of living with and caring for someone with dementia. At Curant Care we are Dementia Champions and provide sessions to our care staff to be Dementia Friends. This enables all our staff to be aware of how each person living with Dementia will have a difference experience.

When you choose Curant Care it will be with the reassurance that appropriate dementia care will be provided at home. A companion will be sensitive to your individual needs, have a good level of understanding of your condition and be able to provide as much reassurance, support and guidance as required.

We have developed special resources to help carer’s and families a like engage and orientate those living with dementia at home. Our dementia toolkit is one such resource, designed around the researched evidence that visual prompts can be more helpful than words alone. It includes guidance on life story work, activity planners and flash cards that can be used around the house.

The realisation that somebody you love is no longer able to fully look after themselves can be one of the hardest times. However, with over half the people we support having some form of memory loss, we are successfully helping customers with vascular dementia, Lewy body dementia, frontotemporal dementia (Pick’s) and Alzheimer’s to continue living in the comfort of their own home.

The familiarity of home and the consistency of routines are both key in caring for someone with dementia. Call us today to see how one of our professionally trained care workers and companions can provide the extra support you need.

Dealing with a loss of confidence

It is only natural that your confidence goes when you are unable to complete the everyday tasks you always have done. Our carers put your needs and expectations at the centre of everything that they do, empowering you to take control and encouraging and promoting your independence at all times.

If it is reassurance that you need, our visiting carers will work with you, giving you the extra support and care you need and involving you every step of the way. This may involve an overnight stay to attend to any night needs and give the confidence that somebody else is in the house. As you gain in confidence, we can reduce the level of care we provide.

How to arrange Companionship Care

With a dedicated customer team just a phone call away, who will talk through all of your needs with you and arrange a consultation with a local care manager – it couldn’t be easier to arrange home care.

Furthermore, their professional development does not stop there, we are committed at supporting our care staff all the way up to the Level 5 management and leadership in health and social care if that is what they aspire to achieve.
