For anyone that has a spare couple of hours a week, you can volunteer as a befriender for Age UK and make a real impact on someone like John's life. I have been visiting someone for a couple of years now, and find it hugely rewarding. So if you have time just to chat, pop to the shops, or play a game with someone for as little as 2 hours per week please get in touch with Age UK.
Its will soon be xmas! yey! last monday 3rd december i was asked to go and clean a carpet due to a small flood. i arrived to be met by a lovely elderly lady who lived alone in a ground floor flat. i cleaned the carpet and having done so she asked me if i would like a cup of tea, i said no as i was very busy and had other jobs to attend to. she looked a little falawn when i declined almost with a tear in her eye. i packed up my gear and was about to leave and just thought to my self how lonely it must be for her so i said i will have a cup of tea if you dont mind. she made the tea and asked me to sit with her and even put another bar on the fire to make me welcome. she brought some biscuits out ( that were soft ) We chatted. she told me she was 91 years old, she said she missed company now her husband son and daughter had passed away along with all here friends, she told me every day was the same. cross word and Tv. After 45 mins i had to go. Friday 7th dec i get a call to go back to the house from the council that had ordered the works. I asked if there was a problem with the job or a complaint maybe? they said no Mrs robson had died and they want us to clear the house to the tip. Life is not always kind so take a moment to think of the elderly people this xmas. Just thought i would share that with you.
iv'e noticed that people in the comment section comment how sad they are and feel sorry for older people but why don't they do anything about it, like go to a care home or even just talk to them on the street, last week i helped a old women with a bad with her shopping and she was well funny so why don't we don't go out and help the elderly there all human after all.
Awww when he went to the shops and it was closed I legit teared up. I feel bad for old people I lost someone close to my family to cancer he was abit like a grandpa to me but was such a good man. We should show all these old people love they’re people after all and have emotions like us and unfortunately unlike us they’ve lost too many people and for some all people😔
