Companionship service expands into Cirencester
By Sarah Wood | 23rd September 2022
A service which offers friendship and support to people living at home has expanded into Cirencester.
Helping Old Friends aims to combat the detrimental effect on physical and mental health for people living alone, by providing companions who offer friendship and support, as well as practical help with tasks like cooking, shopping and paperwork.
Lauren Flannigan, who runs the Helping Old Friends franchise in Cirencester, said: "There is a need for a service that provides, more than anything, companionship to people who find themselves living alone and isolated.
"Sometimes older people want to have a person just to talk to or do those little jobs they might struggle with."
Helping Old Friends can also install equipment, with different levels of monitoring, to help provide peace of mind to families.
The business first opened in Swindon in 2021 and delivers 600 hours of help a month. The Cirencester franchise will cover the town and surrounding villages.
Helping Old Friends is looking for new companions in Cirencester. No experience is necessary, they just need their own vehicle.
