Normal service details...
To tackle the problem of loneliness among older people, QCCC has developed befriending services.
The service works by assigning each older person a befriender, who provides friendly conversation and companionship on a regular basis over a long period of time.
This relationship not only promotes wellbeing and confidence, but can also help people in later life to remain independent in their own homes.
