Michael

Michael was referred to Elf@Home by the Elf transport team. Lynn visits him once a week for a few hours to provide practical help, emotional support and companionship. Michael says he is really grateful for the support, and very lucky!

Michael's two children live some distance away so he gets lonely. Having always been a very independent man, he thought he’d never need to rely on the support of others but he has now been ill for some time.

Michael talks about the chats he and Lynn share about Exmouth. They have both lived in Exmouth for many years and share many memories and experiences. He lists the different things he does from Monday to Friday, saying that Thursday (Lynn’s visit day) is the ‘best day of the week’. "The world would be a better place if there were more Lynn’s in the world!"
