I was just driving home where something caught my eye on the path to my left as I turned in. There was nowhere to park because of all the cars on the road but I was pretty sure it was a person. I did a quick loop and as I got back an elderly woman was getting up of the path wearing a purple dressing gown. I stopped and asked her if she was OK and she said she was, she looked a little bit disorientated however and just kept saying she was OK when I asked if she needed any help. she then went into a property nearby where she had gotten up from. I called the police 101 number as I was concerned she may be vulnerable. Speaking to the handler she took some details and then asked why I had phoned them and not an ambulance, I said I didn't know if she was hurt or just vulnerable either way, it wasn't normal to be lying on a path in the rain just before midnight. The handler then asked me if I would go and knock on the door where I thought the woman had gone to see if she was OK. I refused as I said I think it would look odd a stranger knocking on the door around midnight. The call handler then said they would phone the address to see if the person was OK. I don't know if they have sent anyone to check on her and also I feel it was wrong to ask to check too. What do the denizens of OcUK say?
