Companionship

When you spend a lot of time on our own it can lead to you feeling lonely and a bit down. It’s much nicer to have someone to pass the time of day with, and to discuss the things that are important to you.

Treasured Time befriends people at home and brings companionship and enjoyment to your day. I tailor my visits to the needs of each person, depending on what they would like, and their current circumstances. Some people are housebound and just enjoy sharing a cup of tea, reminiscing, or playing a game of something to pass the time while we talk – while others might want to get out and about, whether it’s shopping for food or clothes, or going out for a walk and a coffee at one of the Sheffield parks, or garden centers. Confidence in going out alone can lessen as you get older, and you may be glad of that bit of extra support to help you do this.

Treasured Time’s ethos is to help you maintain your independence for as long as possible, and continue enjoying doing the things that matter to you.

Home Help

Everyday living can become difficult to manage. You may require some help with meal preparation, or assistance with the daily tasks that are needed to run a home -so whether its help with the washing and ironing, or hoovering round, Treasured Time can assist (although it does not offer a full cleaning service).

If you are not able to get out yourself, Treasured Time can for example; go shopping for you, or collect things from the chemist for you.

Dealing with paperwork or appointments can become stressful if you get a lot of things to sort out. Treasured Time can sit down and help you with everything, so that it’s one thing less to worry about. So arranging appointments, changing or cancelling them, or helping you pay the bills can all be done together.
