Who We Are
Why We Do What We Do
.Sometimes something doesn’t sit right with you or you see people in need of help and realise that you can provide the solution.
That’s how Olden Goldies began. Barbara Davey was a long time companion to a dementia client in a position that lasted 7 years. As her client’s family lived abroad, she did housework, meal preparation, accompanied appointments and of course ‘oot & aboot’ trips.
This is where the idea of Olden Goldies came from. Barbara saw that older people were being left behind – forgotten – especially throughout the recent health crisis and that just wasn’t on.
So, being the type of person she is, she left her comfortable job in the NHS with a steady salary and job security in order to help people through her Companion+ service. Providing friendship and lots more to those who have given everything for their family and their community throughout their long lives.
Knowing that everyone needs and deserves a friend, a helping hand or just some company in times of loneliness, drives her ever-forward.
What We Do
How We Help
Let Us Be There When You Can't
Perhaps your parents or a family member are getting older and you’re frustrated that you can’t help them as much as you’d like to. Maybe you’re busy with your own family and work or you live too far away to make regular trips.
At Olden Goldies we want to help change the lives of elderly people & their families by giving our clients something to look forward to and bringing happiness into their lives.
Don't Let Post-Lockdown Blues Interrupt Happiness
With recent events life has been very difficult and has left many of our Olden Goldies feeling lonely & isolated. Covid 19 brought many challenges for families and was an even bigger hurdle for those living alone who were shielding. This has had a lasting effect on self-confidence and health & wellbeing. At their own individual pace we can help your Olden Goldie to live life to the full again.
Wouldn’t you be happy in the knowledge that your Olden Goldie was having regular phone calls, visits or social time out that allowed you to carry on with your busy life?
Wouldn’t it be great that your Olden Goldie could be accompanied and supported to all of their medical appointments?
Whatever your situation, the Olden Goldies team are here to help people in their golden years to enjoy life.
