Ian Thomas from Age Cymru says we need to look after the elderly members of our communities at Christmas and during the rest of they year. Research by the charity revealed that 22% of older people in Wales weren't looking forward to Christmas because it makes them feel 'more lonely'
Age Cymru say that whilst Christmas is a time of 'happiness' for many of us, it can be a very 'lonely time' for older people.
Latest research by Age Cymru has revealed that 22 per cent of older people in Wales are not looking forward to Christmas.
The study also revealed that one fifth of those who were not looking forward to Christmas said that it brought back too many memories of those who had passed away.
Age Cymru has set up a Spread the Warmth campaign to help tackle health, heating and loneliness issues for older people this winter.
