Shelley Skinner has started The Friendly Robin, a companion service to the elderly in the Alresford and Winchester area. Many of us have elderly relatives or friends who may feel isolated at home, especially when they are no longer able to drive.
We all lead such busy lives with our own careers and children to look after that it doesn’t leave a lot of time to give them the help and support they might need. This is where The Friendly Robin can make a difference; offering a professional, friendly service, helping people in their retirement live fulfilled, happy and organised lives.
These are just a few examples of things Shelley can assist with:
Take you to visit the grandchildren or watch them at a school concert
Accompany to meals out or a cream tea
Arrange and help with emails or Skype
Arrange and take to appointments
Attend clubs, meetings and sporting events
Book and attend plays or concerts
Buy magazines and newspapers
Discuss current or historical events
Get involved in hobbies and crafts
Go for walks and much more …
Yes, Shelley is my darling mother!
