Look out for your Neighbour
The clocks have turned back, the nights are longer, and the days are shorter. It’s the season we tend to stay indoors to avoid the weather, but we should spare a thought for some of the more vulnerable members of our community – the elderly.
It’s important to make sure that your elderly neighbours are OK when temperatures start to drop, especially those who are house-bound, or who may not have family to pay them regular visits.
Loneliness can be miserable and extremely damaging to a person’s mental health. Simple human contact is vital for our general well being. So, if you know a neighbour lives alone, make a point of popping in and seeing if they need anything. You might find that they need a little company and knowing that someone cares and can be called on in an emergency can really make all the difference.
