For almost a year, the Daily Hope free telephone phone line, launched by the Church of England, Faith in Later Life and Connections @ Holy Trinity Church in Claygate, has been reaching out and helping to support older people, providing them with hope and comfort.
In addition to the Hymns, reflections and prayers, more options are being added to help in this time of great need. The line also offers Chair Exercises on the Phone which are vital, but gentle exercises, to help with circulation and fitness for this most isolated section of our community.
New for February, Sleep well with the Daily Hope’. So many people of all ages, but especially the elderly, are struggling to sleep at this worrying and unsettling time - sleep researchers are now calling this ‘Covid-somnia!’ To help with this, Daily Hope has launched a series of gentle and relaxing reflections written by Pippa Crama, using wonderful Bible verses for callers to listen to on the phone whilst they’re in bed.
