Elderly Are Often Forgotten - From Fiona


Hi everyone. My name is Fiona and my Dad is in prison. My Nana, his Mum, isn't coping very well with his imprisonment and after always being active shopping everyday, she doesn't want to go out because she said she is ashamed and is scared of people asking her about him. My Nana is very old fashioned in her ways and is struggling to accept it all. She is 74 and said she won't visit him because she is frightened of going to prison seeing him. I have read loads of posts on your site and I think it is brilliant that you are covering this topic because the elderly are often forgot about and need support too. Our family is supporting Nana the best we can so hopefully she will come round and start being our Nana again. Lots of love from Fiona.
