Importance of Shared Hobbies:

Engaging in shared hobbies is a potent catalyst for developing a strong bond between carers and those under their charge. Shared hobbies can open avenues for engaging and stimulating activities, encouraging conversation, bonding and creating a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. It's this human connection, this companionship, that sets apart the service offered by PrimeCarers.

The beauty of PrimeCarers’ unique matching algorithm is that it takes into account the hobbies of both the carer and the client when making matches.

Walking (53.2%):

Walking is a favourite among many carers and their clients. It's an excellent way to get some fresh air, enjoy the wonderful Peterborough landscape, and keep active. Whether a quiet stroll by the Nene River, or a trip out to the Ferry Meadows Country Park with a carer, walking provides accessible activity for all fitness levels.

Cooking & Baking (48.2%):

Is there anything more comforting than the aroma of a home-cooked meal or a freshly baked cake? Many companionship carers love preparing meals with their clients, offering an interactive activity and a tasty reward. Want to share a favourite recipe or learn some new culinary tricks? PrimeCarers can help find a carer who's also a whizz in the kitchen, making meal times a shared joy and not just a necessity.

Dancing (36.2%):

Music and movement can bring people together like few other activities. Even if mobility is a concern, chair-based movements can still be enjoyable and beneficial for flexibility, balance, and mental well-being. Dancing allows for liberation and expression while also offering gentle physical exercise, making it a fantastic shared hobby.

Music (35.9%):

Music is a universal language that resonates with everyone. Whether it's playing an instrument, singing, or just listening to some favourite tunes, music can bring joy, trigger memories and stir up conversation. Sharing a love for music with your carer can lead to many a comfortable afternoon of enjoyment and reminiscence.

Puzzles (31.0%):

Many of our carers and clients find joy in the challenge of puzzles. It could be crosswords, jigsaw puzzles, sudoku or a game of chess. Puzzles stimulate the brain, promote problem-solving, and can provide hours of shared enjoyment, making them very popular among the PrimeCarers community.


It's essential to note that these popular hobbies aren't exhaustive. PrimeCarers prides itself on having a diverse range of carers with different backgrounds, experiences, and interests, thereby facilitating excellent matches between carers and clients.

Remember, shared hobbies can genuinely enrich the companionship care experience, creating bonds and shared experiences. Coupling this with the expertise and experience of PrimeCarers can alleviate the stress of finding suitable care, making the whole process more pleasant.
