Socialising can help elderly people to avoid isolation and enhance their emotional well-being. There are numerous ways of socialising or enjoying the companionship of other people and these include volunteering and participating in time banks. Otherwise there are a wide range of day centres for older people which offer activities and refreshments, lunch clubs, special interest groups, drop-in centres and befriending services. Homesharing offers companionship in return for sharing your home, and there are services that offer companionship on outings to places of interest or dedicated shared transport to shopping centres.
