Companionship

Companionship

Someone That You Can Turn To

When we are recovering from a sickness or an injury, we may need to have someone that we can turn to. Here at Lotus Home Care, our daily companions will make sure that they are there when you need them the most. The companions can escort you to medical appointments, religious engagements and social functions.

They can also be with you when you want to engage in entertaining activities like games and crafts. Support for all of this is provided by fully qualified and experienced health and social care workers.

Happy = Healthy

We often associate elderly care with those suffering from illness, general old age, or disabilities. However, one of the most crippling conditions elderly people find themselves enduring is loneliness.

It’s not difficult to see how isolation is common for elderly people whether that be friends passing away or loved ones living far away. As a result, loneliness can lead to depression, decline in physical wellbeing, and a heightened chance of developing complications like Dementia. That’s why we offer our companionship service; to show our clients that there is still a reason to wake up in the morning and live a healthy and happy life.

What’s Included?

With our Companionship service, we provide:

  • Having a nice chat over a cup of tea
  • Visit your local supermarket
  • Taking you to visit important connections
  • Visit the local day centre
  • Company and transport to key appointments
  • Company to watch your favourite film

We’re Proud To Be
Dementia Friendly

At Lotus Home Care, we recognise the challenges faced when dealing with Dementia. We provide a safe environment for our patients who suffer from this illness; ensuring they carry on living their lives independently and to their full potential.

Hear It From Our Companionship Client’s Family

Lotus Home Care Client

"From our first contact and throughout the duration of our time using Lotus Home Care, the experience has been without a doubt one of the most professional and personal. They were always willing to go over and above to meet any needs that were necessary. Every aspect of the company, from the office personnel to the onsite carers and field Care supervisors, made a difficult situation much easier for not only my dad but also the family. Our sincerest gratitude to the people at Lotus for their caring and helpful attitudes".

Lotus Home Care Client

They are compassionate and dedicated. I highly recommended them! They go above and beyond excellence! Thank you".

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What kind of care can you provide?

    At Lotus Home Care, we are passionate about delivering a high quality person centred approach. Our carers are what makes us succeed in what we do. So ensuring all our carers are not only fully trained in all aspects of care delivery but many different training opportunities are provided on an ongoing basis too.

    This means we have highly skilled care staff that can safely deliver a multitude of different tasks.

    • Overnight care
    • Dementia care
    • Alzheimer’s care
    • Respite care
    • Bariatric care
    • Palliative care
    • Physical disabilities care
    • Live-in care
    • Learning disabilities care
    • Personal care
    • Convalescence care
  • Do you accommodate overnight calls?

    At Lotus Home Care we strive to provide a service that suits all individuals. Delivering a good care service is not always just during the day, this includes providing a high-quality service during night time hours as well.

    We provide waking nights, where a carer will be alert to any care duties and available for the full night-time period to assist with care. We also provide sleeping nights; this is a great service if yourself or family member needs support during the night but only occasionally.

    This also gives individuals the reassurance that there is someone else there for them if needed, it also gives relatives that peace of mind.

    • Overnight care is when a carer stays in your home overnight to attend to your normal activities of daily living.
    • Care needs don’t stop at the end of the working day and fortunately for many who need help, neither does caregiving.
    • Having access to trained staff through the night is essential for many complex medical conditions or when an individual is recuperating from an illness.
    • For families, knowing that a loved one has to spend the night alone can be a concern.
    • If a situation occurs during in the small hours, and no-one is present to act quickly, it could easily lead to an emergency situation.
    • Loved ones may not always have a personal care alarm to send an alert for assistance, but with professional support present, such fears are put to bed.
    • The primary benefit of overnight care is that individuals who may be anxious or lonely are able to rest well and get a good night’s sleep.
