For most people, the comfort we feel in our home is like no other. It is the place that you feel most relaxed and happy. However, as the natural course of life changes occur, you may find your house isn’t as busy as it once was, and there aren’t as many people around to give you that extra hand when you need it.
Handle With Care (Black Country) Limited’s companionship service gives you the support you need to live independently, providing you with the assistance of a member of our care at home team at times to suit you.
Our companionship service is most suited to individuals who will benefit from having the reassurance that someone is there with them to offer support when it is needed. It also provides peace of mind for family members, who are unable to visit as often as they would like, knowing that their loved one is being cared for.
All our carers, are carefully selected to match your personality and requirements, they will be able to provide you with company and conversation, as well as providing support with a range of household and social activities. We will arrange for you to meet your carer as soon as possible before your care package begins, to make sure that you are happy with the agreed arrangements.
Our companionship service is individual and very much tailored to meet your current and changing needs.
