An unplanned, spontaneous chat about growing old – in Hackney and other places. We did it in the garden to simulate an outside broadcast.
The voices belong to: Andreas, Cornelia, Irene, Megan, Pauline and Sallie.
Recorded 20 April 2018. 29 minutes.
Our theme is social isolation amongst older people – and our starting point is the proposition that the best way to understand social isolation it is to talk to older people who have direct experience of it in their own lives or the lives of their friends – and the best way to combat social isolation is to follow the lead of the experts – older people who deal with it as part of their everyday lives.
The voices belong to Charlie, Liz, Mimi, Rick, Theresa B.
