Garden house hospice – compassionate neighbours

Compassionate Neighbours are local volunteers who provide support to members of our community who may be experiencing loneliness or social isolation by:

Visiting regularly for a cup of tea and a chat
Offering friendship and a listening ear
Helping them to do the things they like doing
Helping them stay connected to the community as well as family and friends

The effects of social isolation and loneliness in people of all ages can be as detrimental to health as smoking 15 cigarettes a day and, with around 200,000 older people in the UK not having had a conversation with a friend or relative in more than a month, Garden House Hospice Care wants to raise awareness and help people connect with their community.
