Friendship Call Participant – Neville

Neville was originally referred to us back in August 2021. Neville lives on his own, and his wife is very poorly in a care home. Neville has been receiving friendship calls from two volunteers – Jonathan and Julie who alternate calling Neville. Neville has reported that he finds this service very invaluable as it eases the loneliness when he cannot go and see his wife. Neville enjoys watching sports and loves anything that can challenge his mind like dominoes. As restrictions have now eased, Neville has mentioned to Julie that he would love to be able to get out and about a bit more and meet new people. Julie has agreed to pick him up and bring him to a coffee morning being hosted by Rotherfed on 9th February, He is really looking forward to this, but has said that he will still very much like to continue with the calls as they break up a very lonely week.
