Private Social Care Agency

Everyone benefits from meeting other people and taking part in social activities.

Not only do shared activities and positive relationships contribute to our wellbeing but they also improve our brain health too.

According to the Global Council on Brain Health’s 2017 report, “older people who are more socially engaged and have larger social networks tend to have a higher level of cognitive function”.

Life events, such as bereavement, ill-health, lack of mobility and confidence, and retirement can all contribute to reduced social networks, making it more difficult to stay active socially. Our social activity support service is tailored to our client's individual needs and we can assist with overcoming many of the challenges older people face with socialising.

Why are social activities so important?

We know that loneliness and social isolation can increase health risks in older people and has been associated with health issues such as depression, sleep problems, hypertension, stress, and mental health problems.

According to Age UK, nearly a million older people in the UK go for more than a month without speaking to anyone. It is normal for social networks to get smaller as we get older and even just thinking about making new friends or socialising more can be overwhelming. And that’s where Mayfair Care agency can help.

The benefits of taking up a social activity

Social activities can help you or your loved one in so many ways, from helping to maintain social connections and reducing feelings of loneliness to introducing new hobbies or skills or revisiting old ones. Socialising has also been shown to help us stay mentally sharp in old age.

Although everyone has unique needs, and physical abilities may differ greatly, we find that everyone benefits from occasional (and preferably regular) socialising. A social event can be something to look forward to, enjoy at the time and then look back on and reflect on.

How Mayfair Care Agency can help

We’ll find activities to suit you or your loved one's needs. Our home care assistants totally understand how daunting joining a new activity or club can be – especially if you or your loved one hasn’t socialised for a while. Physical disabilities, illness or mobility issues might even make socialising seem almost impossible.

But we are here to help you or your friend or relative take small steps to start rebuilding your/their social life, working around their personal home care needs. We’ll help you or your family member or friend to focus on activities you enjoy, going through what might suit your/their personality, considering physical abilities and needs, too.

Perhaps you or your loved one would like to try something new but have no idea how to get started.

We can chat about what might be suitable and find out what the options are in your local area, before helping to complete any paperwork if needed.

Social Interaction Can Make All The Difference

It is totally understandable if you or your loved one feel nervous about socialising. Our care assistants can go with you or your family member to help you get started at a new club or just have a friendly face to go inside with. We will provide the boost of confidence you/they need to get started with something new.

If you or your loved one has problems with mobility, we will try to find a solution. We will help organise transportation and can even go with you/them to carry mobility aids or provide an arm to lean on, should you or your loved one need it. If going out is too tricky we can help to organise for friends or relatives to visit and we can also help enhance your/their social life (or assist with keeping up with people who can’t easily visit) through online messaging applications. Bringing a little of the outside world into your/their life can make a big difference.

Social interaction can make all the difference, and when someone has reduced mobility or other disabilities it becomes even more important.
