New research commissioned by Age UK reveals that 450,000 people aged 65 and over are set to face Christmas alone this year, highlighting the fact that social isolation and loneliness is still a major concern for elderly people in the UK.
Life changing events such as retirement and bereavement can lead to elderly people’s social networks becoming smaller and this coupled with cuts to government budgets and elderly services means that this winter elderly people will feel the cold effects of loneliness even more. But thanks to UK based telecommunications company Easiphone, social isolation can be a thing of the past.
We know that the festive period is hectic and that you can’t always find the time to visit everyone but the brand new range of products and services from Easiphone make communication with your elderly relatives easier than ever before.
