It can get very, very lonely living on your own. I stay at Morris Court, part of Hanover Housing. I get out to a day centre one day a week but on other days I don’t get out and don’t speak with other people. I tend to get up early, I have a carer who helps me with my shower and then I’m on my own. I’m registered blind and don’t hear well so I can’t read or watch TV. The carers will do more for you, like housework, but you have to pay for it. I have family who help me with those things.
We get meals cooked for us and everyone comes together at dinner time but then they all disappear back to their rooms. Why don’t more residents come together for a blether?
I know it’s hard to change this, being in their rooms is what people want to do but I feel that people don’t mix the way they should. It’s too quiet for me there
