How we helped Linda
Linda, aged 75, had spent months alone at home due to lockdown restrictions and started to feel lonely. Worried about the pandemic, she also felt nervous about leaving her house.
After reading about us in a magazine, Linda got in touch to see if we could help with her anxiety. After speaking with one of our Client Advisers, Linda was provided with counselling services through one of our specialist partners, which was set up within a fortnight.
Linda was keen to get online and make new friends she could socialise with, but didn’t have a computer at home. We funded a new tablet device that would enable Linda to connect with members from her local pensioner club. She now regularly meets others via Zoom video calls and joins yoga classes online, which is helping to grow her confidence and helps her to feel more relaxed.
