YOU ARE NEVER TOO OLD TO HAVE A FRIEND

 

In our working, business, family and social life we will find over many years that we develop friendships. Friends that we will treasure, friends that support us and friends that give us independence.

However, for many older people, that just isn't the case. For many their family very often live some distance away and are not always on hand for that immediate physical contact. Many don't have any family. For a significant number it is estimated that their lives revolve around the television, pets and supermarket shopping.

Consequently the biggest issue faced by older people is isolation and loneliness. Most of us think it would be lovely to have some time on our own, but if you are facing that 24/7 then suddenly it doesn't seem so good. Other issues faced by older people include the loss of confidence, increased health issues and poor social contacts. Being part of a social circle has many benefits but first it makes you feel so much better both mentally and physically. We also often find that if someone has been ill, been discharged from hospital, or maybe had a fall that they lose their confidence in getting out and about.      

In the last fifteen years there has been a 50% increase in the number of 55-64 year olds living on their own. A study of 6,500 men and women in the UK over 52 found that being isolated from family and friends was linked with a 26% higher death risk over 7 years.

(Age UK, 2013)

Friendship at Home, the Charity that I chair, plays an important role in helping to build up an older person's confidence and help them get back into their community. Being part of Friendship at Home really does make a difference. We look after all of our Members as if they were our own family. If they don't turn up at the clubs, we give them a call to make sure they are ok and check if they want anything doing.

Knowing that someone is looking out for you makes you feel much more positive about life. We now find that our Members make new friends who keep an eye on each other, meet up ouside of our activities and often ring each other, just to have a chat.

Although we have a fantastic team of volunteers, we are always looking for more. The more volunteers we have, the more people we can look after. So, as an individual that may have time on their hands or a business that wants to extend its reach into the community there is always an opportunity to play your part in making friends and supporting those in need of your friendship.

Friendship at Home is a registered charity based in Cleethorpes covering the whole of North East Lincolnshire.
