Today I had a little respite as only 2 welfare calls came in. They were converted into visits to provide comfort and reassurance. Incidentally, both were elderly and living alone and they just needed someone to speak to. Indeed one of them hasn’t left their home since February and has lost total confidence and any inclination to do so for the foreseeable future.
Unfortunately these are not isolated cases and they live amongst us, possibly closer than you think. If you are aware of anyone that fits this profile and especially with the dark nights now drawing in, please knock on their door and see if they are okay….. otherwise pass on the Branston Helpline number 07395 906220
