Description:
On behalf of the Council of Ireland and the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, I welcome the publication of this report on a survey of old people living alone undertaken by members of the Society under the direction our Development, Training and Research Committee. The survey is unique in that it deals with conditions in both the Republic and Northern Irelond and is,l believe, the first survey on such a.scale to seek the views of the elderly themselves on two vital areas of their living conditions, viz., housing and social contact. It is our hope that the findings of the survey will not only improve the quality of the service provided by the members of this Society to the elderly living alone, but will alert other voluntary organisations and the community generally to their needs and contribute to improvements in the policies of government . and other agencies in relation to the elderly.
