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.

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

Covid-19 update: due to the current situation, many of our services are not running all, or are running in a different capacity. If you would like up to date information on a specific service, please call us on 0141 889 7481, email info@roarforlife.org. Alternatively, fill out a service request form, and a member of our team will be in touch. Thank you for your patience at this time.
