It’s normally around Christmas, that potentially most depressing and lonely time of year, that we put the call-out for some neighbourly TLC.
With the country in Lockdown Lite until March 29th, as we try and kick COVID-19’s ass, right now, the elderly need our help more than ever.
With this in mind, we reckon if everyone takes care of anyone elderly or vulnerable in their neighbourhood within a 10-house radius, life will be an awful lot easier– and sunnier – for those being forced to self-isolate.
It can be as simple as bringing their dog for a walk, or grabbing their groceries. Or just saying hello each day.
With supermarkets overloaded with home deliveries, there’s something about the reaching out of a helping hand right now that might brighten up the darkest of days. And not every senior citizen can take advantage of the local call-out for 10am to 11am to be exclusively their time at the supermarket.
So, take a look around, see if there’s anyone living nearby that might be all alone, and a little too frightened to leave the house right now. And go say hello. See if they need Meals On Wheels.
Should take no more than five minutes. And it’ll give that elderly person a warm feeling inside for at least 24 hours.
