Success Stories

Every penny raised for Best For Ages contributes towards funding life-changing services such as Live at Home, Music Therapy and Chaplaincy provided by national charity MHA - and we're proud to enhance over 10,000 older people's lives each year across the UK.

Why not take a few moments to read and celebrate the real-life success stories from some of the older people your charitable efforts have helped us to support?

 

"Live at Home really helps with loneliness. It gets you out of the house. I live in a retirement complex but unfortunately the people here don’t mix very well. So many seem to just shut themselves away. But Live at Home gets you talking to people."

"What would I do without Live at Home? It makes it much better for me to carry on. They are arranging some outings on a barge soon, so I hope to go. It’s such a good scheme for people like me who live on their own."

"It’s just wonderful, so jolly. It gets you out and mixing with people, so you’re not sitting indoors by yourself. We’ve been to pub meals, museums and out to Southsea. I don’t know how the manager does it! She’s so bright and cheerful."

"Live at Home has made such a difference to my life. I live alone and don’t have immediate family close by, but the friends I have now, I met here. The volunteers work so hard, and everyone at the club is lovely. These are the people I can call friends now."

"After I joined Live at Home, it was as though my prayers had been answered. It changed my life 100%. I can get a minibus to take me there and back, and once I’m there, I’m in a beautiful room with lots of windows and light, and people I can talk to."

"Attending Live at Home is the only time I get out of the house each week. I used to spend Christmas with my family but since they moved to Cornwall and London and my wife passed away, I don’t make plans anymore. I live alone a day at a time now but grateful that I’m still here for another Christmas."
