Companionship and social connection

Being around your community and activities that connect you with family, friends and interests builds happiness and helps the body and mind. It’s also a great way to make new friends. We can help you stay connected.

Independence is more than a state of mind. Staying connected to others helps stave off loneliness and plays a vital role in our connection to the past and future. We support you to maintain your personal and social connections so that you stay independent and happy.

Where available, we can ensure you have a culturally appropriate support worker who can speak your native language and understands your cultural needs.

We can also assist with translators for appointments, companionship for meals and travel, and family and carer advice.

Below are some suggestions on services that we can help you with that will keep you independent and happy at home.
