Does anyone else have a lonely loved one who would benefit from more social interaction?
My mother is 63, paranoid schizophrenic for at least 30 years. She gets help coming by her house almost daily, but she still feels so lonely. She keeps telling me “I need a friend! I don’t have any friends!” There are places I can take her to ‘meet people’ but they are all closed due to Covid.
So I was thinking… Is this a problem others are having? Could we put two lonely people together on a phone call? Set up like a buddy program?
Anyone else interested in this? Maybe we would talk to each other first, as a way of feeling out a fit?
As for mine, she is creative, funny, a die-hard Democrat, currently fascinated with the 10 commandments. She is generally really supportive and enthusiastic about what other people are into.
Maybe it could be a bright spot in their days…
