As many as 1.4 million elderly people in the Netherlands face loneliness. As many as 200,000 of these people are extremely lonely. That means that social contact is anything but a matter of course for this vulnerable group of people. They only see another person once a month. To support them, APG is entering into a partnership with the The (Dutch) National Foundation for the Elderly. APG is adopting Zilverlijn: A free telephone service for elderly senior citizens who indicate that they would like to receive one phone call a week from an enthusiastic volunteer.
