Helping Pauline to manage loneliness and feelings of isolation

How we helped Pauline

Pauline lives alone and hadn’t been out of the house for quite some time, following a knee operation. She had family nearby but didn’t want to bother them too much. After a few months had passed, Pauline realised she was feeling lonely and decided to call us to see if we could help. 

We were able to support Pauline  funding a tablet device to help her connect with people. Pauline has found that this relatively small step created opportunities for her to become more sociable. Pauline’s confidence has grown as result – she has since set up a Facebook account with help from her neighbour.  

Using her tablet, Pauline searched online and found a local pensioner club, who she meets with regularly. Pauline also texts her grandchildren and is becoming better acquainted with technology; she’s even showing some of her friends how to use it, too.
