Older people are such great company – I have always enjoyed hearing about their lives and loves – out of the desire to see the elderly community live life to the full ‘Heartland Befriending’ was birthed in 2014.  It is hard to describe what befriending actually is, but it is always focused on my client’s unique circumstances, health and wellbeing, because, of course, we are all one-of-a kind!  So the assistance I offer is as varied as you need it to be: visiting a lunch group, getting to an appointment, going for a walk, cooking, shopping or watching your favourite TV show.

I believe passionately in doing all I can to provide care, compassion and companionship to help all of us to connect to our communities; that way everyone benefits.
