Mumby’s Outstanding Companion Care at Home
Live-in Company to help reduce loneliness for your loved one
Mumby’s companion care overcomes the often-inevitable problem of loneliness in the elderly.
As people age, mobility and health issues may prevent them from getting out as often as they like to. Seeing friends and family becomes more of an effort. Living alone, perhaps recently bereaved, may be difficult to adjust to. And the pandemic has made getting out and seeing people face to face even more difficult.
We provide companion care to simply offer a comfortable and caring friendship at home. To have someone to chat to when you want to, to accompany you on your daily activities, to support you with your hobbies and to relax and watch a movie together. It can be beneficial just knowing there is someone there for you.
Our companionship carers can also help with chores around the house such as shopping, cooking and cleaning. They can escort you to a doctor’s appointment or to see friends and family, assist with technology so that you can safely speak to people you care about online or offer the opportunity to have fun and engaging conversations.
If you’re feeling lonely, you’re not alone
Loneliness can manifest itself in many ways. You may feel stressed or anxious, bored, concerned about making your mental health worse or having no-one to talk to about worries.
According to Age UK, half a million older people go at least five or six days a week without seeing or speaking to anyone at all. And two fifths all older people (about 3.9 million) say the television is their main company. Loneliness and social isolation is a huge and distressing problem.
Health issues associated with loneliness
There are a number of health issues associated with loneliness such as depression, sleep problems, hypertension, stress and mental health problems.
