Research shows that older people living on their own risk loneliness and social isolation and need more emotional support, companionship and timely support to sustain their mental and physical wellbeing.
Issues to be addressed include:
• Social isolation and disconnection from communities; feelings of emotional loneliness and poor mental wellbeing.
• Health and social inequalities - barriers to accessing support.
• Making unnecessary GP and /or A&E visits.
WE URGENTLY NEED VOLUNTEER BEFRIENDERS ACROSS THE COUNTY.
We are always looking for volunteers to step forward for this worthwhile project.
