Welcome, we are
The Good Company People
We believe that having Good Company on everyone’s doorstep will help over 60's, many of whom are experiencing social isolation, living with mild cognitive impairment or dementia, enjoy more independent, fulfilling, lives for longer.
The Good Company People supports self-employed Hosts to provide 5-hour Good Company sessions to up to five Guests in Hosts’ own homes, to give informal carers a regular affordable break from caring.
The Good Company People carefully match those you care for with a Good Company Host who enjoys similar hobbies and interests, to ensure that Good Company is enjoyed by all.
We are a not-for-profit. Everything we do is centered on creating personalised, interactive, and fun experiences, not the bottom line
Find Good Company for the person you care for
We'll help you find the perfect Host for the person you care for so they can continue to do the things they love in good company.
Good Company Hosts are trained and equipped with the know-how and tools to improve Guests’ emotional, social and psychological wellbeing which has been proved to lead to greater life satisfaction. In fact, research tells us that just 10 minutes of social interaction a day helps improve wellbeing for people living with dementia. (Alzhimers Society, 2018).

A personalised support plan
Our approach is guided by the latest research findings of what works best to support the wellbeing of people living with either mild cognitive impairment or dementia and anyone experiencing social isolation.
Each Guest undergoes an assessment so we can fully understand their life story, hobbies, interests, mobility and if relevant, how their dementia affects them.
We develop a personalised support plan for each guest and carefully match them with a Host and two other Guests.
Sessions are designed to help guests maintain their physical strength, mobility and cognitive functioning by doing activities they love in good company.
