MP's praise for open houses to help elderly cope with loneliness this Christmas
2:00pm Monday 16th December 2013 in News
A Hampshire MP has praised a charity’s scheme to tackle loneliness at Christmas.
As part of the Coping at Christmas campaign, Tamar House and Privett Farm House in Gosport – both Abbeyfield homes – are inviting local older people to join residents for a free festive meal or overnight stay.
She said: “For many people, Christmas is a very difficult time of year, which is why I am pleased that local Abbeyfield houses will be opening their doors to elderly people who would otherwise be alone over the festive period.”
