Mum, 76, borrows from daughter in 'difficult weeks' – fears for 1.2m with no 'lifeline'

Those without children may find it more challenging, and may not have any family support to fall back on in times of hardship. 

Suzan, 76, said her child was a vital source of support, adding: “My daughter is my greatest ally, bless her.

“If ever I’m short, I can borrow from her and pay her back. Not large amounts, but sometimes on the weeks that are difficult, when I have a lot going out.”

The charity Independent Age has called for the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) to help older people who are struggling with their financial situation.
