    Benefits of having a private companion for the elderly

    Having an Artisan Auntie or Uncle to provide companionship and home help will help you live independently as well as bring extra joy into your life. They are there to be a sort of auntie, i.e. someone who’ll look out for you as well as do a bit of light housework.

    This means you’ll always be able to rely on someone you can have a chat with over a cup of tea, whether you want to sit at home and watch your favourite TV show together or go out to a café. As someone who provides companion care, your Auntie or Uncle will be happy to take your lead – they want you to have a good time and enjoy yourself, so let them know what makes you happy and they’ll make it happen! Fish and chips at the seaside anyone?

    We’ll choose the right companion for you

    This is where you’ll really see the Artisan difference. We are renowned for finding superstar Aunties and Uncles, the majority of whom have a customer service background. But that’s not enough for us. We look for people who have a positive can-do attitude, are passionate about making a real difference in your life, and are well suited to you, your personality, outlook and lifestyle.

    When you contact us, we’ll have an initial chat so we can find out all about you. We understand what a big step you’re taking and want to find exactly the right Auntie or Uncle who’ll make a positive difference. We’ll make sure we match you with a companion who’ll be able to do the job brilliantly and who we’re sure you’ll get on famously with. (If, for whatever reason, you don’t, then let us know and we’ll find a different Auntie or Uncle to provide companionship care for you.)

    We do thorough background checks on all candidates to ensure they have the certification and training necessary to work as Aunties and Uncles, as well as being incredible at what they do.
