Socialising helps reduce feelings of loneliness. It can also help to sharpen memory and cognitive skills, increases your sense of happiness and wellbeing, and may even help you live longer.

The companionship care services provided at Farrell Healthcare are designed to support those who feel isolated and lonely, but are still able to stay in their own homes. While companionship care is unique to each individual, it generally aims to reduce or prevent loneliness in elderly people who might otherwise become isolated by providing companionship and socialisation.
