Companionship is relational and thus very important within the healthcare setting. It is relational because it requires commitment, time and effort to establish a good companionship. It is about going the extra mile to spend quality time with a person you care about and helping them keep active through social interaction, relationship building, social outing and the completion of basic home task. The practical step will help the person who is at risk of been lonely and/or those suffering from loneliness to increase their sense of purpose, stimulate their mental health, accelerate their recovery for those with ill health, and more importantly, it gives peace of mind.
