Thank you for getting back in touch and for sharing your age with me. I am really pleased to know that you have people you can reach out too and that you feel comfortable chatting on this forum.
Something I would like to make you aware of The Silver Line Charity. They provide a free, confidential helpline that offers friendship and advice to older people 24 hours a day, every single day of the year. From friendship calls, to friendship letters they offer a range of support services to help combat loneliness. You can reach them by calling 0800 4 70 80 90, or visit their website to find out more here: https://www.thesilverline.org.uk/what-we-do/our-helpline/
I really hope that this information will be useful to you but Carol, but if you would just like to talk to me about anything at all then please don’t hesitate to send me another message.
