If you or a loved one are feeling lonely and could benefit from some extra companionship, please get in touch.
We provide companionship to adults living all over South West London. Weekly visits from one of our companions can help you to regain or bolster your independence and self-esteem. Companionship visits can be as simple as sharing a conversation over a cup of tea, going for a walk, or supporting you to get more involved in your community.
Would you like someone new to talk to?
Would you like to be accompanied to appointments and events?
Do you want to be more involved in your community but don’t know where to start?
Many of us take companionship for granted but studies have shown that loneliness and social isolation are associated with several diseases, such as heart disease, anxiety, depression and Alzheimer’s disease.
There are many reasons why someone might feel lonely, such as losing a loved one or difficulty leaving the house due to poor health. No matter the reason, our companions can accompany you and help you to maintain your physical health, your mental health and your independence.
Whether you’re looking for a full-time live-in care assistant or a companion to go for a coffee with once per week, we know you want someone you can talk to and have a rapport with.
At certain times in life it can feel daunting to leave the house on your own. Our companions can support you by joining you on trips to medical appointments or to events in your local community so that you can maintain your independence.
We know you want to see the same person each week so that you can build a rapport with them and properly connect. That’s why we'll always do our best to make sure you see the same companion.

From Acton to Dulwich and Notting Hill to Wimbledon - wherever you live in London, our carers are ready to support you.
Whatever your care needs and wherever your loved one is on their care journey, please contact us and let’s talk. We're here to help.
Our companionship service is based on personal experience
We understand, first-hand how important it is to secure flexible and bespoke home care for your loved one.
“Tiggo Care is born out of my own personal experiences, following my struggle to find suitable care for my parents, both of whom lived with rare diseases..."
Chris Williams - Tiggo Care Founder
At Tiggo Care we understand how precious your loved one is to you and how unique they are. We also appreciate how overwhelming it can be to research and source the most suitable type of care.
We fundamentally believe that there is no ‘one size fits all’ care package and like to work with you and your loved one to understand your specific requirements. We’ll then create a tailored care package and match your relative with their ideal carer.
Unlike some other care providers, we are fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission. This means we are regularly inspected, rated and audited to ensure we are a safe, effective, caring, responsive and well led organisation, committed to delivering the best possible care.
We’re also proud members of the Homecare Association, the U.K’s membership body for home care providers, which holds organisations to a high set of standards and requests them to abide by a strict code of practice
At Tiggo Care, all of our carers undergo a rigorous recruitment and induction process. They are fully vetted and background checked, with all references followed up. Our carers undertake their training on the best eLearning system currently available within the UK care market, ensuring they are well placed to deliver the best possible service. Specialist training courses such as moving and handling, medications and basic life support are also completed by our carers face to face, as we feel these courses are more effective when delivered in person.
If you like what you've read and are ready to access one of our care services or perhaps just have some questions, please follow our simple 3 step process below.
Send us some additional information about your request by emailing us or by using the form below. Alternatively, if you would prefer to speak with someone directly, please feel free to call us.
Our care manager will arrange a free consultation with you at your loved one’s home to better understand your requirements, create a personalised care plan and pair your loved one with a suitable carer.
And that’s it. You’re all set! We’ll introduce you to your loved one’s carer and the whole team, who’ll be able to provide you with all the ongoing support you’ll need.
Companionship care can take on many different forms but at its very core it involves one of our companions spending time with you or your loved one. During this time they might share a conversation over a cup of tea, go for a walk, or attend a medical appointment or event.
We offer full-time live-in companionship care where the companion will live with you in your home. We also offer companionship visits as short as two hours.
Care assistants are trained to provide personal care, specialist care and emergency care. Companions can often provide these services too but their primary purpose is to keep you company and to assist you with day-to-day activities.
All staff at Tiggo Care undergo an enhanced DBS and barred list check.
