Case study Mrs X:
Mrs X is a 60 years old with mobility impairment and mental health problem. She does not read nor write English. Her social interaction with other people was limited. All this made her isolated, bored and depressed. This year our befriending volunteer visited her and after assessment encouraged her to join our social space and wellbeing club (empowerment club for women). This was a good opportunity for her to leave the house and socialise with others. This helped her to reduce her isolation, boredom and depression, as she put it “before I felt isolated, depressed, nothing to do, just bored, but not anymore. I feel now happier, relaxed and positive thinking”.
