Did you know...
Loneliness can be more harmful than smoking 15 cigarettes a day?
Research has found that people who experience regular and extended periods of loneliness are 64% more likely to develop a dementia, suffer from depression and have heart disease.
Our Befriending service is dedicated to supporting people aged 75+ in Swansea, Neath Port Talbot and Bridgend who are experiencing loneliness and isolation.
This project matches volunteers and clients based on shared interests, fostering a friendship that can conquer isolation.
What makes Age Cymru different
