Sarah*, 83-year-old, lives on her own. She has outlived her family, can’t drive and is cut off from any friends she had. Sarah* believes that no one cares about her.
“I just feel so lonely.” “What do other old people on their own do?” These are Sarah’s heat-breaking words.
Sarah doesn’t have much money, her pension gets her from week to week and there is rarely any left over. Going out to eat or entertainment is too expensive, so she sits at home, alone.
There are so many elderly people like Sarah*, who feel forgotten, isolated and lonely.
