At the Good Companion we find time and time again that the elderly are at times lonely and even a single weekly visit of a couple of hours helps. A special outing, social gardening or catching up over a cup of tea is inexpensive to put in place and can make a difference. At times we are contacted by family and friends of a rest home resident who would benefit by being visited by their own private companion. As with other aspects of life, a relatively insignificant action can assist in achieving a larger positive outcome.


If you are looking to enhance your life by making a difference in in someone else's day, consider coming aboard The Good Companion. Client assignments available on Auckland's North Shore, Henderson and a number of Wellington suburbs. If you are lucky enough to reside in the Nelson-Marlborough region we would love to connect with you. Access The Good Companion website and register via the JOIN tab.
