Approached by the local hospital and care home, Befriending Caithness was asked if they could fill the gap that currently exists within the community. More and more older people are being kept in hospital or a care home, and whilst in residence their relatives find it difficult to visit due to lack of transport, mobility or their own ill health. The longer the elderly person stays in the hospital the more isolated and lonely they become.
Through this project Apples and Honey Nursery hoped to connect younger and older people together. It aimed to bring together communities, to tackle loneliness and to create friendships. This case study is being worked on at present.
