Lily was referred to us by the council in April 2020 during the first lockdown. Lily lived with her husband Peter and suffered from anxiety and depression. Lily also had some clinical issues and problems with her heart. Lily was placed with our board member Mary who has continued to support Lily throughout her time on the friendship calls and a very special relation had built up between them. Sadly, Lily had recently passed away, however Mary spoke with her husband Peter, and as Peter and Lily had been married for over 60 years, Peter found life very lonely, and Mary offered to continue to call Peter going forward. This was agreed and Peter will now receive regular calls from Mary during his time of bereavement and for however long he needs the calls.
