For some people living alone means that they miss out on daily human contact, someone to chat to, laugh with and share their lives. This can be a particular problem for the elderly, who may be left on their own once family of friends have moved away or passed on, are housebound through illness or lack of mobility. They may worry that they may not be found if they suffer sudden illness or a fall.
Caring Caller is a free service offered by St John. Each day, a friendly caring caller will phone to have a chat and check all is well. Caring Caller also offers a built in Homecheck service. Action will be taken should the telephone not be answered.
We welcome people interested in becoming caring callers and those people who would like to hear from a caring caller each day.
This free service is our commitment to the community especially to the elderly. For more information phone St John Caring Caller 0800 780780
