Helping Older People in Need of Support and Companionship this Winter
Silver Line offers older and lonely members of the community information and advice to give them a helping hand and companionship this winter. Silver Line can be reached on 0800 470 80 90. It aims to combat loneliness through calls to trained volunteers.
The goal of the friendly 24-hour help line is to signpost local services that can be helpful to those people feeling isolated to show them that they are valued members of the local community. In the run up to Christmas, where loneliness is all too often the reality for a great number of older people, this service is a life-line for people looking to talk to a friendly voice.
If you think an older person could benefit from these services, tell them to call Silver Line or visit http://www.thesilverline.org.u...
