Social Support ServiceSocial support/brfriending service for older people in Exeter
What does it do?
Careline telephone contact service
We offer a chat and social support through telephone contact, two or three times a week to people living alone with few social outlets.
People who receive this service really appreciate the relationships that are formed with the volunteers who make the calls. It can be a real life line to people who are isolated and lonely. It can also pick up potential problems before they become crisis; an element of this service that is undoubtedly a huge bonus.
Soundbase hard of hearing group
This is a small social group for older people whose hearing loss prevents them from joining larger groups and participating in ordinary social activities.
Residential and nursing home visiting
Volunteers can also visit groups of people and individuals in local residential and nursing homes for a chat, and perhaps be the only visitor that someone might have.
