Did you know that in the UK?
- 1 in 3 older people are affected by loneliness;
- Half of all older people in the UK consider TV to be their main form of company;
- Over half a million older people leave their house once a week or less;
- A saddening 450,000 older people in the UK spent last Christmas alone;
What makes the difference to each of them is the gift of time, a friend, someone to be there for them.
