Do you know an elderly person who might benifit from being able to talk to someone, no matter what time of day?
Silverline is the only national, free and confidential phone line that is dedicated older people.
They are open every day and night of the year and the number is 0800 4708090
Please share, visit their site or make of note of the number.
Research has shown that 40% of over 70’s skip meals due to loneliness.
To to help combat this Bisto has teamed up with Contact the Elderly to put together Spare Chair Sunday.
They hope that those with a chair to spare at their table will be encouraged to invite an elderly person to dine with them who might otherwise eat alone.
