Combatting loneliness and the feeling of isolation through companionship and more, because care is a lot more than just tasks
Loneliness and isolation has a real negative effect on mental and physical well-being.
Affexa Care Services Social Support is here to combat isolation whilst enjoying life and improving the general well-being of those we visit.
WHAT IS SOCIAL SUPPORT?
Social support is a flexible service designed around each individual to bridge the gap between physical care and emotional support.
It can provide a feeling of safety when getting out and about, especially to those who no longer have the confidence to access their community alone. The reassurance that is felt by having someone by their side can get people doing the things they once loved.
A visit at home to combat isolation, a chance to get out of the house safely, or some support attending activities out in the community are all possible.
WHO IS SOCIAL SUPPORT FOR?
Social Support by Affexa Care Services is for those with mobility problems, illness, or frailty who may be feeling stuck at home, isolated and lonely, or find it really difficult to get out and about.
It can also be a start for those who want to dip their toe in and see if home care might be for them. It is also a great option for those who need a friendly shoulder to lean on or a confidence boost in accessing their community.
We offer our social support services to those living at home, residing in a residential home, or in supported living because we know that this service may not be available to all.
