What Is Companion Care?

Companion Care is that friendly face you can rely on. Your personal care assistant is there to provide companionship and help you with those little things that you’d prefer not to do alone. Whether it’s a helping hand with the dishes, going out and about, reading a book, a spot of gardening or having a cup of tea and  a lovely chat, it’s your choice.

You’re able to live the way you want, in your own home. With support from experienced carers, you can rely upon a familiar face to be there for you.

You don’t need to compromise your independence. Unlike in care homes for the elderly, when using homecare, you benefit from one-to-one support. Your private home carer is solely focused on helping you enjoy life the way you want.

Companion care is particularly great for people who don’t want disruption in their life. There’s no need to move or get used to new places and faces. People with dementia particularly benefit from homecare, remaining in the familiar surroundings of home. Safe, comfortable and well looked after by personal one-to-one support.

How does companion care work?

Companion care is tailored to your needs. Whether you need a few hours from time to time or someone to manage all your routine needs, an experienced support worker will be there to provide company whenever you choose. They'll be your own personal care assistant.

With a support worker regularly visiting, you’ll have the reassurance of receiving one-to-one care in your own home. Our elderly carers support your needs as they change.

Professional care workers always make sure your dignity is respected at all times. And because you can choose the same people to help, they’ll get to know how you like things done, so everything is just right!

We help families across Greater Manchester find the best elderly carer. All carers at Holm have already had their qualifications and criminal record checked, so you don’t have to worry about doing it yourself. Plus, you can get the support you need within days.

How can Holm Care help you?

We’ve also experienced how difficult it is to find quality homecare. That’s why we created Holm Care to help others.

It doesn't matter if you’re purchasing private homecare or using an elderly budget from social services. You’ll be able to make your finances go further receiving more care for the same cost.

They earn more than they would do elsewhere. Carers also receive free training to help them keep on top of the best standards of care.
Holm Care is not an agency.

That means we don’t charge you the same rates care agencies do. Not only do you save money, but we use our years of experience to make sure only the best carers are available on Holm.
