Respite and Escort Services

At Starzcare, we always stress the importance of companionship services and how these services of friendship can be crucial in improving the lives of elderly people living in their own homes. Companionship can bring entertainment, social interaction, and mental stimulation to elderly people, and help to keep feelings of loneliness and isolation at bay, which can be as damaging as other physical problems. Our friendly, confident, compassionate staff provide our service users with hours of happiness by simply engaging with them as a companion. Due to their personable nature, building bonds of trust and friendship should come as no problem.

Caring for a loved one can be physically and mentally very demanding. It’s a role that requires 100 per cent commitment, and a lot of selflessness. No matter how committed you are to the needs of the person you’re caring for, you also need to make time for yourself. Starzcare can relieve main carers from their roles for short periods, ensuring that their loved ones still receive the help and support they need.

We provide these services in a range of lengths of times to include:

  • Escorting to appointments, day centre and assistance shopping
  • Social calls to events and luncheon clubs
  • Respite sits for main carers to attend appointments, outings or simply get some rest
