Very pleased to read AA Gill's prominent article in the Sunday Times Mag yesterday.
Mr Gill certainly hit the spot; highlighting loneliness and isolation.
But - like most people new to the subject - he is at most only partially aware of the vast volunteer army of Forums and Networks; building and operating support systems for older people's services.
Also - as Jackie Allen pointed out - "Older People" are not an amporphous, asexual mass; but a group as diverse as any other in our society.
So, it's great to have you with us Mr Gill; bringing older people's issues into the mainstream, and attracting the attention that we need.
But please investigate Dignity in Care campaign and come and see the Forums in action before you write your next article.
There's a lot of good stuff going on...
