Local Assembly Member for Monmouth, Nick Ramsay, is urging everyone in his Monmouth constituency who is over 70 and in need of support while self-isolating to register with Age Cymru free of charge, to receive a regular phone call from the charity which is available in either English or Welsh.
Speaking today Nick said: “ All you have to do to register is call Age Cymru’s advice number on 08000 223 444 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
“ I’m sure this service will be welcomed, especially by the many elderly constituents across Monmouthshire who are living alone and are unable to get out and about to see friends and family.
“ I know there are many local schemes being set up across the constituency to help the older and more vulnerable members of our community, but Age Cymru’s free service is a great way of having a regular friendly chat via a well-established charity and with people who will be well placed to offer support and assistance.
“I hope that many elderly people who may be feeling lonely and anxious will phone the free number to register for regular phone calls.”
