Clocks going back means "darker" days for the Socially Isolated

As the clocks go back an hour this weekend and the days become shorter, those who are socially isolated become even more vulnerable.

The amount of daylight getting less and less can result in low mood or depression, a loss of interest in normal activities, feelings of despair and for those living alone, an overwhelming sense of loneliness; all leading to an increase in GP Surgery appointments.

The services Inspire provide can help reduce the number of people taking up appointments at their GP surgery and from some being prescribed anti-depressants. Sometimes all that is needed is support from a Home Companion or a Befriender; and as it is getting near to Christmas, a trip out to do their Christmas Shopping can help reduce their loneliness. 

If you or someone you love and care for need support  then contact us to find out how we can help:
