Health – Social Isolation recognised

The BBC reports that a five million pound charity scheme to provide lonely older people with 24-hour access to ‘friendship, information and advice’ has launched today.

‘The Silver Line’ is staffed by trained volunteers and aims to support people over 65 who live alone, which can cause serious physical and mental health problems – an earlier trial answered calls from 7,000 older people.

Care and Support Minister Norman Lamb said: “In our busy lives we too easily forget the thousands of older people who often go for days without seeing or speaking to anyone, or rely on the television for company.

“This service will help provide people with the companionship and support they deserve in their older years
