The value of knowing you are loved

Over 30,000 people in Woking are over the age of 85.

Feelings of isolation and loneliness are all too common amongst older people and can often be accelerated due to ill health, lack of mobility and bereavement. It quickly spirals and soon older people can lose their confidence to get out of the house and socialise.

There are many wonderful organisations in our area that provide befrienders to those who are housebound, but after that visit is over, imagine if that volunteer could leave behind a simply vase of flowers to remind that person that they are loved and thought about all week long.

To let them know that because of them, their community is brought together – in a way that couldn’t happen without them.

To remind them that an appreciation of beauty, love and life are available to all of us, no matter what.

“The most terrible poverty is loneliness, and the feeling of being unloved.”

― Mother Teresa
