It was great to meet some of the other people living in the flats. Now I can knock on their doors for a cup of tea.

Why think about Christmas when the sun is shining?

The great people over at FabNHSStuff.net have featured an article looking at why it’s important to think forward to Christmas whilst the sun is shining. It looks into some of the most important facts on isolation, like the fact that 10% of older people often or always feel lonely. This loneliness can then lead to a 64% increased risk of dementia and is the equivalent of smoking 15 cigarettes a day.

If you have time, make sure to give the FabNHSStuff article a read now.
