"Live at Home really helps with loneliness. It gets you out of the house. I live in a retirement complex but unfortunately the people here don’t mix very well. So many seem to just shut themselves away. But Live at Home gets you talking to people."
"What would I do without Live at Home? It makes it much better for me to carry on. They are arranging some outings on a barge soon, so I hope to go. It’s such a good scheme for people like me who live on their own."
"Live at Home has made such a difference to my life. I live alone and don’t have immediate family close by, but the friends I have now, I met here. The volunteers work so hard, and everyone at the club is lovely. These are the people I can call friends now."
"After I joined Live at Home, it was as though my prayers had been answered. It changed my life 100%. I can get a minibus to take me there and back, and once I’m there, I’m in a beautiful room with lots of windows and light, and people I can talk to."
"Attending Live at Home is the only time I get out of the house each week. I used to spend Christmas with my family but since they moved to Cornwall and London and my wife passed away, I don’t make plans anymore. I live alone a day at a time now but grateful that I’m still here for another Christmas."
