I’ve heard that lots of older people who live alone and are particularly isolated during this period, are signing up to homeshare schemes where you’re matched with a younger homesharer for companionship and they give a number of hours of help around the house. Anyone tried it? I saw a piece in Evening Standard about Two Generations.
Me too Esspee I am not the most tolerant person so would prefer to be alone rather than with someone who could possibly irritate the hell out of me. I can imagine more sociable people may enjoy this. There is a big difference though in having someone with you all the time and a visit from a friend .
Not for me. I quite enjoy my own company now. In fact, a friend and I, during a telephone conversation, were saying that we have got so used to pottering about at home, that we are not now in any great hurry to go out. That is sad, isn’t it!
