克雷文-阿姆斯(Craven Arms)的孤獨感,以園藝小組為目標

據一家慈善機構稱,什羅普郡的一個老年人園藝小組可以幫助解決大流行病後的孤獨感。

英國老齡協會希望找到60歲或以上的志願者來照顧什羅普郡山丘探索中心的一個區域。

該慈善機構說,在大流行之後,由於對Covid的擔憂,它看到老年居民的焦慮情緒有所上升。

"該組織的安妮-豪斯說:"我認為我們仍在與大流行病後的疲勞作鬥爭。

"很多老年人可能獨自在家,我認為這是一個機會,讓人們做志願者,來認識一些新朋友。"

該慈善機構說,它看到在大流行期間,老年人的孤獨感增加,這可能會影響他們的健康和福祉。

志願者必須住在Craven Arms地區,每周抽出幾個小時,但 "你不必是一個偉大的園丁",House女士補充說。

A gardening group for older people in Shropshire could help tackle post-pandemic loneliness, according to a charity.

Age UK wants to find volunteers, aged 60 or over, to look after an area at the Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre.

The charity said it had seen a rise in anxiety among older residents after the pandemic, due to fears around Covid.

"We are still struggling with post-pandemic fatigue I think," Annie House from the organisation said.

"A lot of older people might be home alone and I think this is an opportunity for people to volunteer and come along and meet some new people."

The charity said it had seen feelings of loneliness increase among older people during the pandemic which can affect their health and wellbeing.

Volunteers have to live in the Craven Arms area, spare a couple of hours a week, but "you don't have to be a great gardener", Ms House added.
