Health & wellbeing programmes

Our Renfrewshire network of clubs is an opportunity older adults meet people, socialise and laugh whilst investing in their physical and mental health through life-affirming wellbeing projects.

Befriending Service

Throughout Renfrewshire

 

‘Ultimately the bond of all companionship, whether in marriage or in friendship, is conversation' - Oscar Wilde

 

Our Befriending Service is aimed at people 85* and over who are socially isolated and may have mobility or other disability issues. This service gives the opportunity to meet with a volunteer in their own home. 

Our Phone Befriending Service is particularly aimed at people who are waiting for a befriending service or who feel awkward about visits to their homes, but would still love to have a chat with someone.  It can also be a lifeline in times of bereavement or ill health.

Who Can Use the Befriending /Phone Befriending Service?

  • Older adults living alone
  • Older adults who have been discharged from hospital and need encouragement to regain their confidence and link with their community.
  • Older adults who are housebound, do not receive significant amounts of other services or have poor network of support.

If you wish to apply for yourself, or an older friend or relative please complete our service request form, or for more information contact 0141 889 7481 or email info@roarforlife.org

*We can often make allowances for those under 85 who have no support.
