She is one of the estimated 3400,000 people who will spend the festive period alone, latest stats from Age UK show. "If no one invites me, I will watch the television", she said.

What's happened to the family spirit. People too self absorbed & selfish.

What a sweet lady. I hope she's had that mark on her face looked at by her Dr. She is very pragmatic about her situation and, now that families are so scattered, realises it's the status quo, these days. I have spent the past 3 Xmases on my own looking after my friend's 3 dogs (and mine) so that she can visit her family 200 miles away. I don't mind as I don't keep Xmas anyway....pagan festival that is all about food and getting 'stuff' that nobody needs, anyway! 🤨

We should set up more communal living arrangements for people who don't have families.

I am 81 and I live in a block of 82 flats , supported living. The ones who are alone and lonely have made their beds. Try and help and you will be rudely rebuffed . This is how they have lived their lives. There are givers and takers in this world and the chickens come home to roost. You feel sorry because they are old. I am also old and I can see through them.

Cameras Followed This 98 Year-Old Elderly alone at Christmas: "Unless 3 months ago   05:51

Mary Tony was a relatively able-bodied senior citizen from Pennsylvania. She had a bunch of friends at a local senior citizens’ center, but sadly she wasn’t able to spend all her hours there. While she was home alone, however, she passed the time in the saddest way – and it made one of her companions cry to watch.

Growing old isn’t as much fun as you might imagine. Though you don’t have to support your children or go to work, the so-called golden years aren’t so happy for many older people.

Indeed, it can be a lonely time, particularly if you have outlived your friends or if you don’t have family members living nearby. This might be hard to imagine when you’re young, but the later stages of life can in fact be extremely isolating for many.
