This time of year, is always hard for older people. Cold weather and shorter days make it difficult to stay connected to others – and many face difficulties meeting winter heating bills. But, at the close of what has been, for many, a terrifying and isolating year, older people are looking ahead to a Christmas like no other in living memory. Now, more than ever, no one should have no one. We cannot let older people suffer alone. Not this year. Not ever.
