‘I like walking—but when you go alone you don’t see anyone and its making me more lonely!’

Rose self referred into the project after seeing a Staying Well postcard in her local supermarket. Rose had recently lost her husband and was adjusting to living alone. Although Rose had the support of her family she felt the need to increase how often she went out independently—particularly to socialise.

Rose worked with the project to link in with local walking groups and social events—she is now feeling less isolated and more independent from her family.
