When choosing elder care services for your loved one, you may need to choose between companion care and personal care. Because of this, it’s helpful to know the difference between the two services. With a home care companion, duties typically include activities such as doing laundry, making meals, and assisting with errands. However, this type of care does not include physical assistance with activities like dressing, bathing, or toileting.
Personal care covers the basic care duties of companion caregiving, while also providing physical assistance to clients. Personal care services can also include non-medical assistance for chronic health conditions, like diabetes or Parkinson’s.
Everyone’s needs are different that’s why we provide personalised care to everyone. Our high-quality care is flexible when circumstances change and always delivered with compassion and respect
Choosing Companion Care is a big decision. Our strict performance guidelines, Care Quality Commission ratings & transparency via our care monitoring app, gives added confidence that our quality is assured.

Companionship care is when a professionally trained carer visits you in your home for some company; someone to share your hobbies with or simply to pop to the local shops together. Sometimes life can be lonely; in fact, 24% of people aged over 60 stated they felt lonely sometimes or often.2 We are here to lift your day and make life easier for you.
