Someone to be there to help you through your day can be all it takes; maybe, just simple good old-fashioned company and conversation is all that is needed.
Companionship is different for each individual, but can simply be a friendly and familiar face, who takes you out and about, supports you around the home or even just sits with you for a coffee and a chat a couple times a week.
Sometimes, what is most important is living the life you want, doing the things you love and having someone to confide in. Companionship can be a great option for those whose families do not live close by.

Mary has enjoyed a very full and active retirement so far but had started to become a little less confident with going out alone to do her shopping. She doesn’t have access to the internet and her family can only visit about once a month as they live so far away.
After careful consideration, Mary decided that she would still like to shop for herself if she had some company to help her to get out and about and to prepare meals.
Widowed three years ago, Sid now lives alone. He struggles to find the motivation for cleaning and generally looking after himself and has let things get on top of him a bit. He thought about having a cleaner before but finds it hard to relax thinking about what might happen to his prized collections with a stranger in the house.
Whenever his daughter visits, she spends most of the time tidying, running the vacuum around and washing up before she needs to leave.
Spirited for her advancing years, Grace has started to become forgetful which has shaken her confidence a little. Her daughter lives close by and sees her every morning and evening, before and after work.
