Holderness Home Care Sitting Service
Holderness Home Care offers a Sitting Service for people who may feel they are too much on their own, and maybe lonely, or who might just need some extra company. The regular company that our Sitting Service provides can make a real difference to our clients’ physical and mental wellbeing.
According to Age UK, there are over 2 million people over 75 who live on their own, and 1.2 million who admit to being lonely. And this is a serious problem, as loneliness affects mental and physical health which leads to an increase in premature death by 30%. Another way of looking at this is that loneliness is as bad for you as smoking 15 cigarettes a day.
Holderness Home Care’s Sitting Service can be tailored to each client and can include different activities. Often this will be having a chat and a cuppa, but could include looking at and arranging family photos; help with a new hobby; or even a trip out for a drink or to go shopping; or just to get out for a change of scenery.
