A Bit About Us
Everyone ages. It’s an inherent property of life. Providing care for family and friends is a round-the-clock commitment and sometimes with the hustle and bustle of modern life we are not always able to provide the amount of help and support we'd like to for our loved ones.
That's where UPlift Devon can help. We provide friendly companionship, help, friendship and company for senior citizens, which gives you the peace of mind that your loved ones are enjoying regular company and support.
UPlift's passion for providing this service has come from my personal experience of caring for my grandmother over the past few years, spending time with her in hospitals, respite units, flats for seniors and a nursing home.
I have witnessed first hand the impact loneliness can have on the elderly and the incredible change in mood and wellbeing that can happen when companionship, friendship and company is put into place.
During the visits with my Nan i became friends with other residents and neighbours, I found myself sitting and chatting to them, listening to their stories, picking up shopping, posting letters and even being taught how to knit ( which was not successful much to the amusement of my grandmother and her friends ).
as I got to know the residents and neighbours I found out that a lot of them were lonely, they either had no family, or their families were unable to visit as often as they would like due to busy work and family lives. I thoroughly enjoyed visiting my grandmother and her friends, and after relocating from South Wales to Devon I was lucky enough to have family that would step in and visit my grandmother regularly but realise there are people out there who are not as fortunate as me and need a helping hand, also for the people with no family who would like companionship, UPlift is here for you.
