B was referred to Helpout.im by an Isle of Man Charity. B is 81 years young and is shielding from the virus and needs help with a regular shop and occasional errand. A lives in the same town and was very happy to help when we asked if he could assist B.
A shops for B on a weekly basis. He also gives B a ring whenever he pops into town to see if B needs anything. Here at Helpout.im we try to keep in touch with our clients and just touch base every so often. We also, less frequently, ring the volunteers who are helping out just to check all is well. We recently rang both B and A and both seem very happy with the arrangement in place.
We often find that our volunteers go that little bit extra. This is especially true with A. By giving B a ring each time he goes into town it provides B with regular contact, someone to talk to and the assurance that if he needs anything that he will get by with a little help from his friends.
We live in a great community, we are in this together and together we will get through this.
