What an amazing story this is! http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-devon-38169575
An 89-year-old man was bored at being at home alone all the time after his wife had died two years ago. To relieve the boredom and to get company and to get to see people more often, he put an advert in a newspaper putting himself forward for work. A kind business owner saw the advert and took him up on his offer after speaking to him.
Whilst this is a great story how a man gets to make a contribution and to have that well-needed cheer and company for himself, it does highlight how sad it is that many people will be lonely and not be able to find that companionship that they seek. Well done to this man for doing something about how he felt and for seeking a solution. Well done to the lady for taking him on and for giving him some hope and happiness in his life. A big well done should be given to anyone who is able to bring this kind of happiness to older people in any way they can do.
