Brian Sloan, chief executive of Age Scotland, told the Daily Record: “This is an absolutely heartbreaking case that should act as a reminder to all of us that we have an important role to play in looking out for older people in our communities.
“Isolation and loneliness are at record levels in Scotland after almost 12 months of lockdown and shielding but even before the Covid pandemic, we knew that 100,000 older people in Scotland felt lonely all or most of the time and 200,000 older people can do up to half a week without a visit or phone call from anyone.
“There is at least one isolated person living on every street in the country. We should all be aware of that and do our part to help our older friends and neighbours stay connected.
“A phone call to a neighbour or a knock on the door for a socially distanced catch-up chat could make all the difference to an older person’s day.
