'Look out for those alone at Christmas'
The campaign aims to help prevent so many older people spending
Christmas alone again this year by encouraging people to check on their neighbours - especially if they are already known to have a problem or have been bereaved.
'Look out for those alone this Christmas' was officially launched by Labour MP Fabian Hamilton at the All Party Parliamentary Group on Hospice and Palliative Care on 23 November.
More than a million people aged over 65 are likely to spend Christmas alone this year, while many others will be facing the seasonal period following the death of someone close to them.
