Leav­ing el­derly rel­a­tives home alone can be a wor­ry­ing prospect for many fam­i­lies, but help is at hand thanks to a new ser­vice from La Poste called Veiller sur mes par­ents. Peo­ple us­ing the ser­vice can ben­e­fit from a daily visit from the post­man/ woman who will pop in for a 5-10 minute chat to find out how they are or if they need any shop­ping, etc. The ser­vice is a prac­ti­cal step in help­ing el­derly peo­ple to stay liv­ing in their own home for as long as pos­si­ble, and also of­fers a friendly face in what can of­ten be a long, lonely day for some. Prices for the ser­vice start from €19.90. la­poste.fr/par­ti­c­ulier/ veiller-sur-mes-par­ents
