Timely reminders to help when life gets busy

Keeping on top of daily life is no mean feat so Grandpal is here with some helpful nudges and automation to remove the stress factor and let you focus on what you need to.


Life is better when we work together

Care for a loved one is a shared responsibility. Whatever your family dynamic, it's important to establish a level of understanding around what the plan is and what each member feels that they can contribute to the mix.

Grandpal provides the platform for a clear view of how best you and yours can work together and be the best support possible.

"I just feel like we're all in sync now. Grandpal gives me and my siblings great peace of mind."

The power of your community

We understand how it feels to not always be there for your older loved ones, when the reality of life kicks in we tend to have less time than we'd like. Busy jobs, busy family lives and more means we can't always prioritise what's important, but Grandpal is here to help you with that - find someone to be there when you can’t.

Grandpal connects you with a local community member to visit an older family member when you can't be there yourself. It's about companionship. Find a Grandpal volunteer to pop over for a cup of tea and a chat and provide that meaningful one-on-one time.

"Well whoever you guys are, hats off. I love what you're doing and well done."

"From the moment we heard about Grandpal, we knew we wanted to be involved. The Grandpals that we have met and commenced with our residents have been so kind, so thoughtful and such an addition to our team and brought new ideas and experiences to our social and activities programme."

David Wallace, Director of Nursing
Elm Hall Nursing Home

"Sometimes the most valuable thing you can offer a resident is time - someone to talk to, a confidant, a pal. The Grandpal service has been a wonderful addition to The Fern Dean and has meant that those who don’t get regular visitors can be prioritised for these visits, ensuring they receive an appropriate level of social engagement."

Aoife Houlihan, Social Care Manager

"It’s hard to imagine what it was like before Grandpal, we have been engaged with the service for nearly a year now and I have to say it has brought so much more to our home then I originally envisaged, their visits are not only benefiting our residents but also creating a sense of connection to our wider community which holds great value to us. Thank you for providing such a wonderful service to our residents."

Veronica Hale, Director of Nursing
Mount Hybla Nursing Home

"Grandpal have been a lifeline for my mum, given her an opportunity to form a new friendship, that is enriching and stimulating for her. She is often very animated when talking of her most recent visit. I am indebted to the Grandpal team for sharing their care and compassion with our family. There’s great peace of mind that comes from knowing your parent has their very own guardian angel, thanks to Grandpal. I couldn’t recommend them more highly."
