The Importance of Companionship for Psychological Well-being

Older people are especially vulnerable to loneliness and social isolation – and it can have a serious effect on health. Hundreds of thousands of elderly people are lonely and cut off from society in the UK, especially those over the age of 75.

According to Age UK, more than 2 million people in England over the age of 75 live alone, and more than a million older people say they go over a month without speaking to a friend, neighbour or family member.

People can become socially isolated for a variety of reasons, such as getting older or weaker, no longer being the hub of their family, leaving the workplace, the deaths of spouses and friends, or through disability or illness.

Whatever the cause, it’s shockingly easy to be left feeling alone and vulnerable, which can lead to depression and a serious decline in physical health and wellbeing.

Social contact with other people is a crucial aspect of our psychological well-being. In addition to providing home care services, ICare helps to enhance the independence, dignity, and privacy of individuals as they age and require additional assistance. We can assist you whether you are looking for companionship or assistance for yourself or a loved one.

Invaluable Support for Those in Need

As a companionship care service, we provide invaluable support to those who have experienced the departure of their families and need some extra assistance at home. ICare companionship services are a great option if you feel lonely or isolated at home and are concerned about your present and future care needs.

With companionship from ICare, you can engage in interactions and activities that promote your physical and cognitive well-being. We foster a nurturing environment through activities like reading or creating a memory book, maintaining social skills, and engaging in stimulating interactions.

ICare companionship can support your self-esteem, sense of purpose, and confidence.

Testimonial

Following the sad passing of Michael from flat 38 Tulloch Court, I want to give my thanks to the ICare team for their support. Michael's care needs were always considered, and he was treated with dignity and grace. ICare went above and beyond to ensure a dignified end; they were amazing to Michael and gave great comfort to a very poorly man.

Testimonial

My overall experience is 5 out of 5 and I just want to say how safe and respected I feel by my regular carers. My two carers are really nice ladies, that always make me feel as if I'm not a burden and it's a pleasure to see me.

Testimonial

I would like to thank all the lovely carers from I Care that so lovingly and happily looked after my Mum for over the last 12 months. She loved you all and were an endless source of help to her and all the family. We would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Testimonial

Staff always do their best to be friendly and helpful, even when things haven't run as smoothly as usual. Management are open to concerns and try to accommodate requests as best they can. Recently there have been some staff changes but nothing too disruptive, it has been well managed to minimise the impact on my family. Greatly appreciated!

Testimonial

I Care have been providing care to my Mum for 3 weeks now, very nice staff who take the time to listen and give care the way she wants. Can't fault them, really. The managers have been really helpful, and even sorted out a lift for Mum to hospital so she didn't have to wait for an ambulance.
