About this cause

About our cause

Many older people living in the UK go for days and in some cases weeks without seeing or talking to anyone. Their friends and family may have died or moved away, or perhaps they are caring for a husband or wife with dementia and feel emotionally isolated. Loneliness can be a shock that few of us anticipate or plan for. It is intensely painful, and figures from the Department of Health indicate that it is as dangerous as obesity or smoking 15 cigarettes a day. Socially isolated and lonely adults are also more likely to undergo early admission into residential care or hospital. The Silver Line is a confidential, free helpline offering information, friendship and advice for older people, available at any time day and night, every day of the year. There’s no question too big, no problem too small and no need to be alone.
