I was delighted to read in todays Sunday Times that Esther Rantzen is starting a help line for older people 'Silverline'. A service working in a simliar way to 'Childline' the childrens service that she created some time ago, and appears to be going from strength to strength.
Older people requiring care have always been vulnerable, but now with ever more older people requiring care and ever less control over who provides the care the situation needs urgent attention.
It was this that prompted me to tweet the following about a month ago:
Well what ever promoted the creation of 'Silverline' - I think it is a fantastic cause that deserves support.
