A friendly face who will stay for a chat and to provide support.

updated 31/3/21

A friendly face to visit you safely in your home

The restrictions imposed because of the coronavirus mean that we cannot welcome everyone back to our day centres as we would like.  We are offering a new service which will provide support to some of the most isolated and vulnerable older people in our community.  We will do this as long as people would like the service and it is safe for us to provide it. 

What does the service offer?

  • a friendly, caring person who will stay for a chat, providing company and support
  • we can help you do a jigsaw puzzle or wordsearch, reminisce about events and enjoy a cup of tea together
  • no personal care is provided
  • our staff will wear the appropriate protective equipment and observe social distancing rules

Who is it for?

  • older people living in Northamptonshire
  • available Monday to Friday 9.30am - 2.30pm

How much does it cost?

  • £19 per hour
  • sign up for a regular weekly or fortnightly visit

  • Our friendly staff will sit and chat with you.  They enable clients to play enjoyable board games and other hobbies, perhaps varnishing their nails, if they wish.

  • As well as staying for a friendly chat we encourage older people to join in stimulating activities that will improve their wellbeing and ensure they enjoy our visits.
