Loneliness among the elderly is a major problem, especially during the festive season. In fact, in the UK alone, an estimated 1 million people say over a month will pass before they speak to a family member, friend or neighbour. These people not only lack the support they need during difficult times, but they also don't have anyone to share special moments with, such as Christmas. This is why Sunrise Senior Living and Gracewell Heathcare homes are inviting older people in their local communities to join them on Christmas Day for company and a warm meal.
