IMAGINE NOT SPEAKING TO ANYONE FOR DAYS AND DAYS!

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/A&E visits  lonely old woman21
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Nene Valley Community Action run a project called #Homealone which aims to support older isolated people by providing them with a training volunteer supporter who will visit them regularly and provide companionship.
