Good company and conversation is enjoyable and important for our wellbeing. It can be hard staying in contact with people as time goes by, especially if you’ve lost touch with close friends or family, or your health isn’t what it used to be.

Independent age offer regular telephone calls or visits from a friendly volunteer can make all the difference – even if you only need it for a short time. It gives you the chance to have a regular chat with someone friendly and trustworthy.

Their volunteers are people who enjoy listening, talking, and getting to know people. They are trained  and have all the checks you would expect.

Some people receive regular phone calls and some receive visits at home. The first step is to call Independent Age to discuss your needs and preferences, and then together we will work out what would work best for you.

People who are not housebound may also be eligible for the visiting service, please fill out our booking form or call us to refer someone or yourself.
