Thismorning there was talk on the radio about looking after elderly people and people who live alone who are not in contact with family and friends.
Now someone's created Neighbour Day.
She talked about the woman who was found dead in her house after two years.... noone noticed for two years. "What if that was your aunt or parent?" HULLO? My Aunt or parent wouldn't be at home on their own for that long at all. (This is the letter to The Age which started it all.)
Some people just keep to themselves. I do get a bit annoyed when it seems to be some kind of reflection on society when people are found in these circumstances. Like I said, some people just keep to themselves.
I have neighbours I'd really rather not have as neighbours!
