Whether you're coping with loneliness, mental health issues, mobility challenges or simply need extra help, a companion can be your key to experiencing the best of Banbridge.

Your carer can help find resources that appeal to your interests, assist you in the use of library facilities or read alongside you, accentuating the joy of shared reading experience. It’s also a good opportunity to discuss and engage with a shared hobby, which according to PrimeCarers’ Most Popular Hobbies among Companionship Carers in Banbridge article is proven to enhance the carer-client relationship.

The Benefits of Getting Out

Taking time to go out significantly contributes to mental health wellbeing. It alleviates feelings of isolation, giving our minds a break and allowing us the opportunity to connect with the external world. Visiting different places can stir conversations, provide stimuli, improve mood, and create a sense of routine. Read more about this in PrimeCarers' Complete Guide to Companionship Care.

Physical Health and Mobility

Carers are also trained in transfer aids and mobility techniques, they can help with safely moving around and minimise the risk of falls or injuries. For those who use supportive mobility devices, such as wheelchairs or walkers, having a helper to navigate any accessibility issues makes outings less stressful and more beneficial.
