What Are Companionship Services?

At Minster Home Care, we believe that companionship and personal support are the basis for any successful care relationship. We are all human, and we all need social interaction and activity to lead happy and fulfilling lives.

Our unique companionship offering is tailored to the exact requirements of those in our care and can include a number of different elements. All of our carers are not just exceptional healthcare professionals but are exceptional people, with a deep-rooted passion for engaging and supporting those in need.

First and foremost, our carers will be a familiar face that will support you or your loved ones by helping with the little things. Whether that’s going out for a walk, sitting down for a brew or helping with your daily tasks – our companionship service is available to brighten the day of those we care for.

Many of those we look after have lost loved ones or have family that don’t live locally, which is why we go the extra mile to offer compassionate support that improves the lives of everyone we care for. Our team can help you by carrying out daily tasks, from picking up shopping to going to the post office or cleaning your house.

In addition to the necessary everyday tasks, our team can also ensure that those we care for have a renewed sense of independence. Our companionship service helps those we care for enjoy taking part in activities that enrich and improve their lives. This can be as simple as providing transport to get to a social occasion, going for a walk or taking part in another physical activity such as swimming.

All of this sounds great on paper, but you or you loved one may be apprehensive about letting a new person into your life and into your home. That’s why we ensure that our incredible carers are fully vetted and are a personality match with those they will care for. If you or your loved one is initially uncomfortable with comprehensive support, our companionship service can be introduced at the client’s own pace as we ascertain their exact requirements.

Minster Home Care are a community-focused care provider that is proud to support the people of York, and our aim is to raise the quality of life as many people as possible – and that often starts with companionship and a reassuring smile.
