There is friends, there is family, then there are friends that become family.
According to the Irish Longitudinal Study On Aging (TILDA), it has been previously reported that more than 45% of Irish people over the age of 74 are lonely. Not only are they lonely, but social isolation increases the chance of getting dementia and it is also associated with depression and high blood pressure. This can end up having a big impact on the quality of life.
Friendship is one of the most important and valuable things in life for people of all ages, however especially in elderly people. So we offer friendly companionship to help elderly people enjoy the benefits of friendship and to enhance the quality of life.
