Welcome to Appointments Buddy! We are a reliable, friendly, and personal chaperone service tailored to the needs of our individual customers. When you need us, we’re there!
We believe that everyone has the right to live their best life. We understand that this isn’t always as easy as it sounds and even the simplest of tasks like attending healthcare appointments, going shopping and general day-to-day activities can feel extremely daunting, especially when facing these alone.
For some people it’s the struggle of getting to and from public transport, knowing they are unsteady on their feet and frightened of falling.
For others it’s the loneliness of having no-one to support them during difficult appointments.
Even going shopping may seem like an easy enough task to most, but for those that have poor mobility this is a real struggle trying to carry the shopping bags and then unpacking them at home.
At Appointments Buddy we provide a chaperone service to accompany our customers to appointments, the supermarket and general social events. We also provide other services which include sitting services, where we are able to assist with day to day tasks such as meal preparation, assisting with medication and toileting.
First and foremost prior to any bookings with Appointments Buddy we will carry out a risk assessment with all new customers so we are able to provide the best service possible for everyone's individual needs, and to determine the level of care required by the customer.
We will collect you from inside your home, we help you with getting your coat and shoes on. We escort you from your front door to our vehicle making sure you are safe and buckled up. We drive you to your appointment and upon arrival we assist you to where you need to be, and stay with you for the duration of the appointment. We will then drive you home safely, assist you back indoors and make sure you are comfortable with a cup of tea in hand before we leave, offering the complete care package door to door.
