Agony aunts and uncles at a Suffolk care home are calling on people to submit their relationship dilemmas ahead of Valentine’s Day.

Residents at The Dell - a branch of Wellbeing Care that provides residential, dementia and respite care - are offering to put their decades of experience in relationships and finding love to good use to help others as they offer guidance and advice.

The care home on Cotmer Road in Oulton Broad is inviting people to submit their relationship quandaries, dilemmas and questions for residents to answer, tapping into their decades of life experience and enduring relationships to provide thoughtful advice and insights.

Offering their advice is former HGV driver, Malcolm, 71, former florist, Elizabeth, 83, and former office worker, Joan, 94, who will be filmed responding to the questions – which will go live on the care group’s social media channels in the run up to Valentine’s Day.

The trio have a mix of life experience between them, encompassing marriage, divorce and single life – meaning they’re well placed to impart their relationship expertise.

Joy Henshaw, regional director of Wellbeing Care, said: "Our lighthearted initiative sees us invite the community to seek advice from our residents, and they’re hoping to provide some valuable insight while also creating meaningful connections between generations and within our community.

"The residents are really looking forward to seeing what things people ask advice on – so if you’re in need of any relationship support, please get in touch."

Collaborative activities such as the ‘Agony Aunt’ initiative and Wellbeing Care’s community contribution for World Kindness Day - which recently saw a mug enthusiast at the home receive lots of new cups to add to his collection - aim to help tackle the loneliness crisis.

To submit your relationship questions and dilemmas, email and the residents will aim to answer these on Valentine's Day – with the option to keep it anonymous.
