Companion care services in Halton
We all need social interaction, for both our mental and physical health. Research shows that regularly interacting with others may even help lessen the risk of developing dementia. Loneliness can be a serious problem for people who live alone or have few people to visit them. When mobility challenges or illness make it difficult for someone to leave their home, loneliness may become a bigger health risk.
