Combatting Loneliness for Older People

May 22, 2020

I wanted to share with you some support for older people in the community to help combat loneliness whilst they socially distance or shield.

 

Age UK runs a telephone befriending service, Call in Time, which allows you to sign up for a free weekly friendship call. It can be a great way to speak to someone new - find out more here.

 

Silverline also offers weekly calls to people age 55 and over. This is a free service for people looking to have a chat with a friendly and supportive volunteer. Further information is available here.

 

Please share this information and don’t forget there are plenty of ways to support older relatives or neighbours without leaving the house. Why not encourage them to get online or give them a call – it can really brighten someone’s day!
