What are Companion Calls?

Our Companion Call service is specifically designed for individuals affected by dementia, providing a warm and supportive channel for conversation.

Imagine a regular, friendly telephone call, typically scheduled weekly, initiated by one of our dedicated volunteers.

Whether it's discussing a favourite TV show, sharing thoughts on the weather, or simply providing a space to talk about how things are going, a Companion Call is a comforting and engaging experience. 

You can sign up now, either for yourself or someone you care about.
