I want to offer myself as a volunteer to help socilise, mix with, and offer a penpal style relationship with elderly people. I recently had an elderly relative die who had little outside contact before she passed, and I feel a sensation of guilt.
Please get in contact on email@example.com or reply to this thread.

John, being an elderly person myself I find it very comforting to know there are people like you about. Bless you and dont feel guilty.

John, great idea but you are already conversing with many older folk on this Forum.
The reference to the Home service and Light programme on the police resource thread indicates someone from the past wrote this as it no longer exists in this form!
Read the threads carefully and you will soon pick up the older person who contributes. Good luck with your efforts to socialise online..................but be careful!

You would probably be better off getting in touch with Age Concern or something like that JOHN . These days sadly,you have to protect yourself no matter how good your intentions.Sadly this is the world we live in. I KNOW there are genuine,good,decent people about but, sadly,to the unruthless they are an unknown quantity. Take care and continue to be a good,caring person.

I found a poor old lady unconscious in the street the other day. I say she was poor, she only had £1.28 in her purse.

She's a charity and thought you sounded like you needed a lift and only quoted £30 because she thought it would be a 30 second wonder with you!
Seriously though call again I need a will, or Chav or Tom or................
