This year we are, again, delivering Christmas gift bags to our befriending clients and other elderly residents across Croydon. Our clients are isolated and vulnerable older people many of whom have complex needs, are bedbound or housebound and often have a dementia diagnosis. Christmas can be such a lonely time for so many and some of the people we help have no next of kin or family nearby. Being able to deliver gifts and take them out, where possible, lets them know that people are thinking of them and means so much to them.
Here are some of the contents and the made up gift bags along with some of the very happy recipients.
