SUPPORTING OLDER PEOPLE

Unlocking Loneliness Since 1982

At SUPPORTING OLDER PEOPLE We aim to alleviate isolation and loneliness for older people who have little or no contact with people other than agency care workers. Without our services many of our clients would be extremely isolated and would not be able to leave their homes. We enhance emotional well-being in an age group where loneliness and depression is an ever increasing problem. Human companionship is essential to good health. We would argue that it is fundamental to our very existence as functioning human beings and underpins our physical, spiritual and emotional state.
What We Offer to Older People VISITS TO YOUR HOME This is the main part of our work: the introduction of a volunteer visitor giving lonely people companionship. This could involve an activity or simply an hour chatting over a cup of tea SOCIAL OUTINGS A chance for housebound people to get out and about, meeting people and experiencing a change of scenery TEA AND TALK ON TUESDAYS Here older people have the opportunity to meet on a monthly basis. They are picked up and taken home by volunteer drivers. We usually have a guest speaker OVER SIXTIES SINGING GROUP This group meets once a month, for a 'just for fun' singing session. A volunteer pianist leads the group
