Companionship and Social Activities

Older people are especially vulnerable to loneliness and social isolation – and it can have a serious effect on health. But there are ways to overcome loneliness, even if you live alone and find it hard to get out.

NHS Choices.

Surrey Downs Homecare with their expertise and team of Care Assistants can help clients engage in a variety of social activities, including:

Conversation and reminiscing: Our expertly trained staff can engage in meaningful conversations with clients, reminiscing about their past experiences, hobbies, and interests.

Arts and crafts: Our Care Assistants can help clients engage in art and craft activities, such as painting, drawing, or making jewelry, which can be an enjoyable way to keep the mind active.

Light exercise: We can help clients with light exercise, such as taking short walks or engaging in chair exercises, which can help with mobility and balance, and boost their mood.

These activities not only provide companionship to the clients but can also help improve their quality of life by reducing feelings of boredom, isolation, and depression.
