Benefits of Befriending
It provides a friendly face.
Users remain independent in their own homes for longer which reduces the need for extra care services and potential hospital after care.
Increased positivity and self esteem through constant social interaction can reduce the knock on effects of loneliness and increase the uptake of other beneficial care services.
Personal liability of failing to notice a death or serious injury within a person’s home is eliminated as the individual is monitored daily. Any concerns or failure to respond to our service will prompt a visit from the designated carer/support worker/next of kin/police.
Carers gain an element of peace of mind knowing that their loved ones are well even when they are not around, reducing the strain of carer support or extra interventions.
A wellbeing record can be composed which monitors the user over a period of time. This can be used as evidence for support or reduction of the need of other services.
Early detection of potential personal harm, damage to property or being unable to cope
