The new Delphinium service

Devoting at least an hour each week and longer if needed, a trusted and experienced Delphinium companion will get to know your loved one well. Speaking regularly on the telephone, offering a friendly ear for conversation and companionship. In addition to offering emotional support and dealing efficiently with your enquiries, we can find sources of extra help, and explore practical ways of addressing personal priorities.

A trusted, experienced companion will get to know your relative well and devote at least an hour every week speaking on the telephone, dealing with enquiries from relatives, finding sources of extra help and exploring practical ways of addressing personal priorities etc.

The Delphinium service can be tailored to support and strengthen existing provision, leaving you to enjoy the time you spend with your relative on what matters most to you both.
