Companionship Care Services
Our care assistants are available to provide clients company and engage in conversation, or to sit down to share a meal together. Social contact such as this is proven to enhance the health, happiness and quality of life of our clients. Prestige Nursing + Care’s companionship care services can help to maintain a social connection for your loved one in several ways:
Sharing a meal with your loved one
Accompanying them or helping them to enjoy their favourite pastimes again
Engaging them in everyday activities in the home
Taking your loved one out to a local event or to see friends and family

What is included in your Companion Care Services?
As part of our Companionship Care Services we prepare hot, delicious, and nutritious meals, allowing clients to help with preparation according to their ability. Some of clients do not have the opportunity to eat a well-balanced meal, and struggle to maintain hydrated. Our care assistants ensure they receive the nutrition and hydration they need to remain well.
We help our clients with their household laundry as part of the home care services which can be done in either the client’s home or the launderette and include washing, drying, ironing and putting things away. Our care assistants will involve clients to make sure laundry is done according to their preferences. Please note that any receipts will be provided if the care assistant takes a client’s laundry to a launderette.
Prestige Nursing + Care’s light housekeeping services include vacuuming, dusting, sweeping and mopping floors, cleaning bathrooms (sinks, tubs, showers, and toilets), cleaning kitchens (sinks, appliances, counters, taking out rubbish), straightening all rooms, organising wardrobes and drawers, and cleaning any interior windows that can be reached without a ladder. We do not provide outdoor cleaning or maintenance.
Shopping & Errands
Our care assistants shop for groceries at stores of their clients’ preference and run errands, such as picking up prescriptions or going to the post office. Many of our clients enjoy accompanying us on shopping trips and errands rather than staying at home. Our care assistants will account fully for any spend they incur on the client’s behalf and will provide receipts, or evidence, for all purchases.
Prestige Nursing + Care provides transportation incidental to other care services, such as taking clients to medical appointments, to the hair salon/barber, the beauty salon, for shopping, or wherever else a client wants to go. Helping our clients to still get out and about and enjoy life is a vital part of our companionship service.
We can help ensure that clients take their own medication as prescribed as part of our list of elder care services. Our care assistants can help with opening medication containers, reading labels and reminding the client when it is time to take a dose.
Prestige Nursing + Care will assist clients with washing and combing their hair and other dressing tasks to enable them to feel good about their appearance.
