Home To Home Calls
Home to Home Calls was established in Birmingham as a social enterprise in 2013 to provide an additional social care service that is often missing in today’s existing care model. Our person centred approach of speaking and actually listening to people changes lives on a daily basis and with the current care pressures that exist within the NHS and Local Authorities we are consistently reaching out to people who need our telephone befriending service the most.
Social Isolation Help In The UK
Loneliness and social isolation is harmful to our health. Research shows that lacking social connections is as damaging to our health as smoking 15 cigarettes a day. Social networks and friendships not only have an impact on reducing the risk of mortality or developing certain diseases but they also help individuals to recover when they fall ill.
Loneliness is as harmful as smoking up to 15 cigarettes a day.
We want people to be supported to:
– Look after themselves, stay healthy and retain their independence
– Participate fully as active members of their communities
– Choose and have easy access to the type of help they need, when they need it
– Remain safe and secure and continue to enjoy a good quality of life.
