Senior Befriending Service - Companionship and Support for Dorset's Senior Community
Hi. I’m Cally McCluskey, I am the founder of Senior Befriending.
No elderly person should feel alone.
Should feel that they have no one to turn to when they need help.
I have elderly relatives and would never want them to feel like that.
Working closely with so many elderly people makes me feel very connected to them - and aware of the challenges they face.
I take away this worry for them…
My clients feel confident they are able to confide in me - asking me for support in anything at any time.
At my business Senior Befriending…
We provide companionship and tailored support for seniors in our local community.
Typically, I work with a limited number of clients at any one time.
The majority of clients come to Senior Befriending through recommendation.
This is really important to me. As it confirms my team and I are continually providing an excellent service to our clients.
On a personal level…
I am always respectful, kind and patient.
And I am easily able to put myself in my client’s shoes… thinking to myself, how would I cope or what would I do if I were them?
I support my client’s everyday of the week in lots of small but important ways.
But I know what my clients appreciate the most is my company.
I’m a very happy and positive person and I recruit my team for similar skills.
Clients tell me...
Clients tell me they find me to be trustworthy, caring, thoughtful and reliable.
I make them feel comfortable and put them at ease.
They know they can ask me to do anything and that I am utterly dependable.
I like my clients to feel that way about me, it says that I’m doing something really great, and that’s why I absolutely love being a senior befriender.
