Why Hobbies Matter in Companionship Care

Companionship care revolves around forming meaningful relationships with clients, beyond just catering to their physical needs. Having shared interests plays a crucial part in fostering this relationship. It's not merely about nursing the client's health or assisting in day-to-day tasks. It's about bringing joy to their lives, enabling them to live more fully.

One way of achieving this is through shared hobbies or interests - it can give comfort to the client knowing they have a carer who truly understands their passion. Equally, it can provide an impetus to try something new. This is where PrimeCarers shines. The platform's sophisticated matching algorithm takes into account the hobbies of companionship carers to find an ideal match for clients.

Here's an overview of the most common hobbies among carers in Devon, suggesting the diverse range of interests that can be catered to:

| Hobby | Percent of Carers | | --- | --- | | Walking | 66.1% | | Music | 51.2% | | Cooking & Baking | 49.6% | | Watching TV | 44.6% | | Reading | 42.1% | | Puzzles | 38.8% | | Socialising | 38.0% | | Dancing | 35.5% | | Gardening | 34.7% | | Sports | 33.9% | | Decorating | 28.9% | | Card Games | 28.1% | | DIY | 24.8% | | Volunteering | 22.3% | | Photography | 21.5% | | Painting | 19.0% | | Board Games | 18.2% | | Yoga | 14.0% | | Knitting | 12.4% | | Writing | 11.6% | | Fishing | 9.9% | | Video Games | 8.3% | | Embroidery | 8.3% | | Collecting | 6.6% | | Scrapbooking | 3.3% |

Exploring Some Hobbies in More Detail

Now let's look a bit more closely at a selection of these hobbies: Music, Cooking & Baking, and Walking - these hobbies represent a broad scope of interests and activities.


Music permeates every culture, acting as a universal language bridging all divide. Perhaps that's why a high percentage of carers (51.2%) consider it as a hobby. Music can stir emotions, stir memories, and provide a comforting background to daily life. A carer with a love and knowledge of music can bring this into their care, perhaps by playing some favourite melodies, bringing along their preferred instrument, or just discussing composers or genres with the client.

Cooking & Baking

Almost half of the carers in Devon (49.6%) mention cooking and baking as their hobby. Sharing meals can be deeply comforting, offering an alluring blend of nostalgia, warmth, and pleasure. A carer with this interest could involve the client in crafting favourite recipes or trying out new ones, creating dishes that are not only nutritious but also tantalising to the taste buds.


Walking is the most popular hobby among carers in Devon and offers a versatile activity that can be adapted to suit different fitness and mobility levels. This hobby links closely to the companion care service that PrimeCarers offers, enabling clients to explore local surroundings or enjoy a leisurely walk in nature while safely accompanied.

Finding a Hobby-match Companionship Carer in Devon

PrimeCarers has deeply embedded the role of hobbies into the process of matching a carer with a client. When searching for companionship care in Devon, the presence of shared interests and hobbies can make a significant difference in the enjoyment and effectiveness of the care.

For example, a client who loves the outdoors and enjoys walking would be best matched with a carer who shares these loves and could accompany and facilitate this outdoors exploration. Can carers take you out? If you or a loved one are passionate about music, a carer with an equivalent enthusiasm can make day-to-day life that much more joyful.

Hobbies offer a gateway to conversation, shared experiences, and forming a bond that makes companionship care such a rewarding experience. PrimeCarers analyses this information to efficiently match clients with carers, making it easier for clients to locate a private carer suited to their unique needs and tailored to their personal interests.


Companionship Care is about more than just providing physical assistance; it's about sharing experiences, fostering understanding, and nurturing a genuine sense of companionship. That's why shared hobbies can hold such enormous value. Thankfully, we are blessed with a diverse array of personal interests embodied by the carers in Devon. At PrimeCarers, we are proud to recognise this and let it guide the process of finding the perfect match for each client's needs.
