SeniorLine is a confidential listening service for older people provided by trained older volunteers and managed by Third Age Ireland.
Our lines are open every day from 10am to 10pm, 365 days a year, including Christmas Day, St Stephen’s Day and New Year’s Day. Seniorline remains open when many statutory services are closed, and is recognised as a primary health care service helping to support older people in their community. Freephone 1800 80 45 91.
As well as responding to individual callers, Seniorline advocates nationally for older people in Ireland, representing their needs, concerns and wishes to media, the general public, politicians and key stakeholders.
We meet Damian Leneghan and Anne Dempsey who talk about the organisation and how they overcame the challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic.
