Her sister passed away 1 year ago and she is struggling to come to terms with this. Her son lives close by but she doesn’t see him that often due to his working commitments.
She is unable to get out and about much so doesn’t often leave the house.
She is hoping to get out more with her volunteers assistance and build a friendship.
