Have 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 isn’t 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.

NEAA’s 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 X’s wishes and with that advocate’s support she explored several options including sheltered housing schemes. Working at Mrs X’s 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:
Norfolk Elders Advocacy Alliance.  Phone: 0800 328 9532. Charity No 1078600.  Or if you have the skills that would have helped Mrs X, you might consider joining us as a Volunteer Advocate.
