Cost of Living Crisis: Impact on the Elderly 2022-2023 [INFOGRAPHIC]
The cost of living crisis this winter is affecting people of all ages across the UK.
However, it is disproportionately affecting older people who are on low or modest income, and therefore pensioners, more than anyone else.
Week after week, prices of everyday items are going up, and monthly finances are just not enough to cover the rising expense.
A new poll taken this October by Age UK revealed how 10% (1.6 million) of over-60s across the country are already cutting back or stopping their social care altogether, or expect to do so in the upcoming months.
This is especially affecting the elderly. 
Older people are drastically cutting back on their everyday spending, but monthly budgets are still not adding up.
With the Universal Energy Price Guarantee set to end in April 2023, the crisis is not due to disappear anytime soon.
The elderly need more support in order to stay warm, eat healthily and live without worry.
To illustrate some of these facts revealed by various surveys, we decided to commission an infographic.
Please remember to share this infographic (if you are able to), because doing so draws attention to the plight experienced by millions of elderly people in the UK right now:
