We are University students from Southampton, working on our final project to complete our studies.
Did you know that half a million old people go at least 5 to 6 days without seeing or speaking to anyone? – Age UK. We want our project to make a difference and beat loneliness in elderly people as loneliness has the same health risks as smoking 15 cigarettes a day.
Greg Redwood, is a 21 year old university student who is shocked by these statistics and wants to tackle these issues. Greg found his former girlfriend on the dating website Tinder but when single tried a variety of different dating methods. Greg is going to help an elderly man find love through different modern day dating methods and reinventing his style. Our presenter wants to understand the difficulties of dating in later life and what it is like to live a lonely lifestyle.
From blind dates to swiping right, we will uncover the true cure to loneliness.
We are currently sourcing a contributor and are aware that they may live far which means we need funding to pay for their expenses. The documentary will be completed by June 2020 as this is a marked piece.
