Elderly mum struggling with MH and loneliness…

CoffeeFirst Scope Member Posts: 200 Pioneering
My mum is 79 and hurt her back last year. My Dad is in a care home and she misses him terribly. I go over as much as I can but she often complains of loneliness. Apart from a couple of neighbours along the road, and seeing either myself or my daughter she is on her own. I recently got her a walker which has helped but she’s so worn out rarely goes out. Her lack of mobility has impacted her mental health so we went to the GP who prescribed medication. It’s early days but the loneliness worries me. 

Any ideas welcome, sign posting, etc most welcome, thanks
