Companionship

Caremark understands you may need help with certain activities and a friend along the way. We recognise that feeling lonely is one of the leading causes of depression in our ageing community and our goal is to reverse the effects of isolation with companion home care.

There may be times when you just need a little bit of extra support or even some company and conversation. Perhaps you’d like someone to help you visit friends, family or other social events. Or maybe you need help managing your weekly shop, getting you to the doctors or taking you to your favourite spot for lunch.

Our Care Assistants are armed with a friendly smile and a listening ear to to all of this and more.

Aged Care Companionship services.  

Your health and happiness is our priority, which is why companion care will be compassionately designed to provide you with a comfortable and inspiring environment while you stay in your own home.

For many people, companionship can spark their motivation to participate in everyday activities. Cooking and eating are more enticing as a group activity and exercising with friends and peers makes the effort much more fun.

It’s our mission to let you lead your life normally while having the confidence that you can still do and accomplish everything you want to with an experienced aged care companion every step of the way.

At Home

We know it can be challenging to stay busy and active, especially if you’re retired and living alone. We want to be sure you feel energised to keep your home tidy, cook good meals, and engage in interesting events. Your companion will help keep you engaged as much as possible. Even simple tasks like folding your laundry or doing dishes are easier and more enjoyable when done with a companion. Our companion services will give you a healthy balance of independence and social interaction so that you can greet each day with a new outlook and look forward to an enjoyable visit from your experienced aged care companion.

Staying Active

Our services include aged care companions for travel if you need to go shopping or someone to drive you to your daily appointments. Have some light gardening or hobbies and crafts you love to do? Your companion care assistant will be with you to chat and engage in daily activities.

One of the most cited activities to prevent depression and anxiety in our ageing community is physical exercise. Your companion will be with you to walk the dog or just take a leisurely stroll. Have a yoga or tai chi class you look forward to attending? Your companion can accompany you and observe or join the class right along with you.

Hobbies and Interests

Caremark knows that communication and socialization with friends and family is also important in keeping your spirits up. Time spent in solitude can increase the risk of depression and anxiety but getting involved with the community, organizing events and reading books with your companion can create a positive and lasting sense of well-being.

Our aged care companion program is tailor-made to suit your lifestyle and your current needs. Have a new activity you’d like to try?

 We will be sure to match you with someone experienced in this area. Have a special interest you want to keep pursuing? We’ll pair you with a companion who understands your likes and dislikes guaranteeing you have the most delightful experience possible
