So why... – written by one of our volunteer Good Neighbours
When my father died, I became acutely aware of my Mother’s vulnerability, even though she had a family to support and care for her.
I started to think a lot more about how other people might manage in her situation, especially if they were very much alone in life.
I made a commitment to give up a small amount of time to befriend someone who might benefit from some company and a friendly ear.
I’ve never regretted it. It’s a win-win situation for the lady I befriend and myself.
There is something very rewarding about ‘putting something back in life’, especially when you feel you’ve had a pretty good innings.
Cheesy, I know, but nevertheless true!
