I founded the charity Embracing Age in 2014, with a heart to embrace some of the oldest and frailest people in our community with compassion and love. We train volunteers to spend time and build friendship with care home residents, who are twice as likely to feel severely lonely as older people living at home.
Today we have over 50 volunteers in all the care home across the Borough of Richmond and have started to replicate our Care Home Friends project nationally. Our ultimate goal is for every one of the 17,500 care homes across the UK to have trained volunteers providing much needed companionship to residents, who are so often overlooked and ignored by society.
Izzy and I will be walking Hadrian's Wall with 4 other people - we are all paying our own way so all the money raised goes directly to Embracing Age, making a difference in the lives of some of oldest and frailest people in our communities.
