At FDR Social care we are aware that loneliness can be a greater issue in life and can even lead to an emotional problem. It is documented in various research by health professionals that isolation and loneliness can contribute to ailments like depression and high levels of anxiety which can lead to serious mental health difficulties. Whilst our Care and Support teams can help our clients to carry out basic day to day activities for example preparing food, shopping and may be washing and cleaning lack of funding and resources means that our team may not provide social support for example accompany a client to a social setting.
