An Elderly Companion carer will live in and provide great help and peace of mind to many families.
Our companion carers are not medically qualified. They are suited to the elderly who do not require specialised care.

For the elderly that do wish to be live as independently as possible, a live in Companion can be of help and assist with the following duties:

  • Preparation and cooking of meals
  • Housework
  • Laundry and ironing
  • Provide assistance with trips to the shops, the doctors or any other day out
  • Any household pets
  • Shopping or other simple errands
  • Can drive if a driver is required ( Companion must be named driver on a car provided and insured by family)
  • Help with mobility around the home
  • Reminding the elderly when to take medication ( but cannot dispense )
  • General companionship and interaction

All Companion Carers are fully screened, with a clear police check, checked references and will have had some experience in this field.
They do not fall into the remit of an Au Pair but are from within Europe with a reasonable amount of English. They will need their own bedroom and eat their meals with you.
A companion carer can provide around 45 hours per week of support and the weekly allowance starts at £200 per week. One to two days off a week would be expected.
Employing an elderly companion carer can provide peace of mind to loved ones that also lead busy lives. They are an alternative option to the expensive cost of the elderly care in the UK.
As an agency, we provide an introductory service. We will listen to your needs and requirements and propose to you potential applicants and arrange interviews for you.
