Could you be the one to ensure Eleanor's days are less isolated?

Our Member Eleanor, who lives alone in Caerphilly is looking for a volunteer companion, to join her for a good chat over a cuppa. Eleanor really enjoys popping to the local bingo and spending time with her sister, shes enjoys watching TV in particular a good thriller!

Eleanor has various troubling medical conditions that unfortunately restricts her mobility and therefore most days she spends alone at home, isolated from the local community. Due to her sight and hearing loss shes also lost all confidence in getting out and about. If she could find a friendly volunteer not only for a a good chat at her home but maybe after growing a trusting companionship then to pop to the local shops and enjoy quality time together.
