They can help reduce isolation and loneliness. Befriending could mean:
• A support worker regularly visiting the person you care for so that you can take a short break.
• Someone visiting you for a short time so that you have the chance to talk to someone different.
• A sitter service, to allow the carer a break from their caring role
• Offering 1:1 support in social interests, hobbies and pastimes.
The mission of Baillieston Community Care is to provide a high quality service to people with disabilities and their carers; attempt to improve their quality of life; prevent inappropriate reception into care; and keep risk to a minimum.
