Can I help Cath Carter Parish Nurse for the Elderly – you can phone me on my mobile (07792 941783) if I don’t answer leave a message and I will get back to you. I am happy to chat and signpost about anything, with a wide range of nursing and listening experience, or have some great volunteers who love talking too, if you are lonely and need a friend. Anyone that knows me will tell you I can talk to anyone, and just love hearing people’s stories so don’t be alone, and have ideas that may help you if you are struggling at this time. Yes we cannot get together just know but imagine the new friends we can make at this time and imagine what we each look like then have the ‘surprise’ when we put a face to the voice we have got to know!
