Companionship & Sitter Service


Social isolation is a growing concern nationwide, and, for many families living far away from loved ones, it can be difficult to help .  A health condition or increasingly limited mobility can increase social isolation, or maybe there are less friends around than before.  Lothian Companions provides social interaction and helps people take back control of their lives, re-enabling their involvement in social events and activities.  At Lothian Companions, we offer a tailored, person centred service to people in their own home, where comfort and happiness are at the heart of everything we do.  

Lothian Companions strives to excel and give you the best companionship or sitter service at an affordable price.

With 20 years experience in Older People's & Dementia Nursing, I understand how difficult and challenging it can be to access appropriate support and how important it is for you to feel like you have someone you can rely on.

Fully insured and DBS compliant.




Sometimes, it's the little things in life that are the most important.  Having that caring someone pop in throughout the week to say hello, see how you are and share the good times with is what life is all about.

Lothian Companions is a perfect solution for anyone who doesn't necessarily need care.  However, they would benefit from regular visits from a friendly face who has an active and genuine interest in their wellbeing.  

Companionship can support your loved one to take part in activities, such as crosswords, jigsaws, gardening, accessing the internet.   The list is not exhaustive and we will ensure that our assessment is thorough and appropriate as well as person centred.

Companionship may involve just popping in for a chat over a cup of tea however, we can also provide support with tasks such as:

  • Laundry
  • Meal preparation
  • Ironing
  • Cleaning
  • Caring for pets
  • errands such as shopping, collecting prescriptions and help with arranging appointments.


Sitter Service
