Milton Keynes Community Alarm and Telecare Services

Specialist Memory Service
The Silver Line
The statistics about older people and loneliness are frightening. More than half of all 75 year olds in the UK live alone and one in ten suffers “intense” loneliness but are reluctant to ask for help.
The Silver Line is a helpline for older people – the Silver Generation. We have no strict age limits but most people we speak to are over 65. So, if you think it’s for you, it’s for you.
