We go way beyond providing care
How about giving you more than just a few spare moments to tick off your to-do list, before you have to rush back to relieve the carer?
Imagine a 5-hour Good Company session for your friend or family member who is experiencing social isolation or living with mild cognitive impairment or dementia. That's almost an entire working day spent with an experienced, trained, and reliable Host. You'll know that they'll enjoy great food, good conversation, and continue to do the interests and hobbies they cherish in Good Company.
A way to continue living life well.
Personalised and stimulating experiences
Good Company sessions run from 9:30am - 2:30pm on weekdays in Hosts' own homes in Hartfield, Rotherfield,, Forest Row, Mayfield, Groombridge, Wadhurst, and Crowborough.
We know that asking for help isn't easy, and finding the right kind of care can be challenging. So, here's what to expect from a Good Company session:
Everyone will share a meal together, prepared by the Host as well as refreshments
The host will pick up and drop off Guests.
A morning activity exploring the great outdoors and an afternoon session doing baking, arts and crafts, games and DIY - whatever the guests enjoy.
Session journaling, so Guests can look back at what they've done and share it with their friends and family.
How we care
Unlike visiting care, we focus on the social aspects and provide stimulating activities focused purely on guests' own interests.
We have assessed all our Hosts and we ensure they are fully trained, insured and DBS checked.
Who Good Company is for
Anyone experiencing social isolation, mild cognitive impairment or dementia and who are wishing to continue with the things they love, in Good Company.
We're operating in Wealden, East Sussex (with plans to expand further!), so if you're living in the area we are right on your doorstep.
A 5-hour weekly session including transport, a nutritious meal and refreshments costs £55. In comparison to other care options, Good Company delivers greater benefits for a more affordable price.
Each session is centred on hobbies and activities that guests enjoy. From gardening to painting, baking to exploring the great outdoors, there’s something for everyone to live well with dementia for longer.
Outside of Good Company sessions, our team will support you and your relatives to access the services and advice you need. We can also recommend tired and tested local activities.
All Good Company Hosts have comprehensive training from East Sussex County Council, enhanced DBS checks, and insurance. They are assessed by an independent social work team and receive ongoing professional support.

Have a cup of tea with the Good Company team
Meet your Good Company host
Our team will come and meet you for a discovery session to find out more about the person you care for.
Once Good Company has matched you with a suitable host, the host will come and visit for a chemistry session and invite you for a cuppa around their house.
If the chemistry session goes well, your relative will be invited along to a Good Company taster session with the Host, if this is not to their liking we will give a full refund.
