Fighting carer loneliness


Many carers feel isolated.  Much of their daily life is overwhelmed by the needs of the person in their care.  Many of their daily interactions concern the needs of that person to the point where they can feel invisible.  This sense of isolation is especially market at times of national celebration when families come together.  Whilst single people may receive invitations to participate in family or neighbour events, many carers do not receive those invitations.  Those kind people who open their homes to those who live alone may not consider that friends or neighbours taking care of someone, whilst not actually alone, might be lonely.

So please help us tackle loneliness at Christmas by becoming part of our “Lonely not only” campaign.  This encourages everyone to invite someone for a Christmas meal.
