Lots of us chat on the phone to our friends and family, and it’s great to keep in touch, share the latest gossip and see what they’ve been up to. However, for many older people their phone seldom rings, unless it’s someone trying to sell them PPI! If you’re a chatterbox, why not think about ringing people who are lonely for a chat? Ring your older neighbour, friend, uncle or granny to see how they are and let them know someone cares.
I’ve got no-one to talk to and I need some help!
The Silverline provides volunteers to offer 24 hour helpline support to isolated older people and they can’t offer their service without people like YOU giving up a couple of hours a week, so why not get in touch.
