In his public role Eamonn encounters many older people who would benefit from this service, which is growing from strength to strength, reaching out to all parts of the County.
For people living alone, Good Morning Louth brings not only information on services and entitlements, but an opportunity to socially engage with others.
Anne brought Eamonn up to date on the service, telling him that over 150 older people from all over the county enjoy regular telephone calls from the Good Morning Louth Service. Eamonn was interested to hear that the service has a system in place to alert others if a call is not answered, ensuring peace of mind for older people and their families.
Feedback has been extremely positive with older people expressing their satisfaction with the service which is staffed by local volunteers, many of whom are retired and like the idea of giving something back to their community. If you are an older person or you know of an older person in County Louth who would benefit from a telephone call, please contact: Anne MurphyProject Co-ordinator, 76 Aspen House, Seatown, Dundalk, (042)9330103 – 086 0773747.
