Friendly Visits

Friendly visits help break the feelings of isolation felt by many seniors, especially in those for whom mobility is a problem.  It can be difficult to get out and about on those cold winter days.  A number of organisations have volunteers who will visit your loved one's home simply to keep them company, or to help them with small errands and tasks.
