London Senior Social was born to create a more flexible and accessible service for the most vulnerable older people within Southwark.
As a support worker a part of my role, is to ensure day care members are taken to their homes safely after attending day centre and over the years they have shared their thoughts with me, highlighting an important fact – older people want to interact and remain active just like everyone in the community. Some older person would say “I sit and watch the four walls all weekend or just sit by myself and watch television.”
One lady once told me that she was so lonely she had not talked to anyone for the entire weekend!! Another lady who lives at a shelter home said she still felt lonely because people don’t come out of their rooms and socialise.
In addition, family members would voice their frustration of having to cope with caring for their senior loved one, particularly on the weekend, as they themselves would like a bit of respite after working Monday to Friday and just needed a break and would like a safe and appropriate social group their parent could attend on the weekend.
They all expressed their wish of having a support system in place where they would feel comfortable to leave their senior family member for the day without the guilt of having their loved one sitting at home all day.
London Senior Social listen and answered the call that older people and family and carer were requesting and created LONDON SENIOR SOCIAL. championing the cause of seniors by meeting people at their point of needs
