People Stopped Listening To You?
|How often are you persuaded by unwanted
advice, like, You really should do this! or If I were you, I would
certainly do that! and it isnt what you really wanted to do? You just want
people to actually listen to you, and what you want to do! Norfolk Elders Advocacy
Alliance (NEAA) is a Registered Charity, working in Norfolk and offering FREE support and
assistance to people over fifty-five.
NEAAs team of experienced Volunteer Advocates will listen! They do not tell you what
to do, they listen to your wishes. Advocates can assist you in obtaining expert advice in
money, health, housing, and social welfare matters, but above all they will support you to
follow your own course of action. For instance: Mrs X, an older lady with increasing
health problems, was living in an isolated property requiring renovation. She wanted to
move to another village where there were more amenities, but the prospect of moving house
was so daunting she felt overwhelmed.
An advocate listened to Mrs Xs wishes and with that advocates support she
explored several options including sheltered housing schemes. Working at Mrs Xs own
pace over several months, and in close liaison with her solicitor and a social worker the
Advocate helped her to move to a new home. For an Advocate to visit and listen to
you in strict confidence, about any matter, no matter how small, just ring:
