Alone at Christmas

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 1:13 pm on 19 December 2017

Six sleeps until Christmas and a lot of us are now dreaming of presents, food and spending time with family.

But what if you don't have family? Or even, many friends? There are many who are alone this time of year, but in particular the elderly often have a hard time.

Simon Wallace, chief executive of the New Zealand Aged Care Association, tells us how we can send some love to those who are lonely this time of year.
