Wave/Swansea Sound Don't Dance Alone

Find out how to join our campaign


As we start our Don't Dance Alone campaign - we are looking at the growing problem of loneliness.

It is something that affects as many as 75,000 older people across Wales.

Two in five people say their pet or the TV is their main form of company.

As part of our Don't Dance Alone campaign - we are shedding light on the main issues facing over 65s here in Wales.

Lauren Jones brings our first report from the Wave and Swansea Sound's #DontDanceAlone campaign:

 

 

Yesterday we told you how loneliness is affecting 75 thousand over 65s here in Wales.

Hengoed Court is a nursing and residential care home in Swansea. It is among those trying to make a difference to the lives of elderly people.

Inviting children from a local nursery to visit is one thing Hengoed Court is doing to help.

Kathy Peart brings you the second report from the Wave and Swansea Sound's #DontDanceAlone campaign:

 

We're looking at just how vulnerable our over 65's are....

We've found many people have concerns about their finances and being able to afford to put the heating on - and some are worried about being ripped off or scammed.

Whilst others are worried about their own safety in the place they should feel safest - what we've learnt is that reports of abuse is on the rise.

Claire Pearson brings you third report from The Wave and Swansea Sound's #DontDanceAlone campaign:

 

 

 

Today we're focusing on dementia and what's being done to help the 42,000 sufferers here in Wales.

The Musical Memories Choir in Swansea brings elderly people with dementia and their families together to sing song from the past.
