Our services have been carefully selected to achieve our aim of combating loneliness and isolation. All services can be tailored to meet your specific needs.
Home visits and catching up by phone...
We introduce you to a befriender who visits you at home to spend some quality time with you. They provide you with regular companionship and through conversation over time you will get to know each other well.
During visits if you would like to play a board game, tackle a jigsaw and reminisce through photographs, your befriender makes a great companion to share with.
Your time with your befriender will always be enjoyable and comforting.
Something as quick and easy as a phone call can sometimes be overlooked. From experience we know it’s a simple communication all our clients find very uplifting. It’s something they look forward to.
Your befriender calls in regularly to see you during the day at a time to suit you. A friendly familiar face coming in to say ‘hi’ and to check you have everything you need and there for a quick chat about your day.
