Everybody needs somebody sometime, says Margaret Wolfe, which is why she and a group of Wollongong ladies bring some of best medicine they can to nursing homes - and that medicine is song.
And whether the lyrics are to "Everybody Loves Somebody Sometimes" by Dean Martin, or the Blues Brothers' "Everybody Needs Somebody to Love", the Silvertones will have their audience bobbing along.
Once or twice a month you'll find Ms Wolfe and her friends from the Older Women's Network choir in one nursing home or another, at any end of this region, in full voice and bringing the smiles.
"We're all older women, so a lot of what we do is helping each other," she said.
"Everybody needs somebody sometime - doesn't somebody sing that?

"The thing is it's really a community service. It's just about bring pleasure to others - and that brings us pleasure."
The trouble is, being the Older Women's Network, they're getting older.
Which means they need to refresh their membership with some new blood.
"There are people who are ill ... people with family commitments, Nannas who mind their grandkids.
"You need a core of at least eight or ten people.
"If we had another half dozen it means if someone's sick or someone's away then you've got enough to make a good noise.
"The group's being going 20 years, and it would be terrible if it folded."
With songs such as When You're Smiling, Darktown Strutters Ball, Your Cheating Heart, Wonderful Copenhagen, and a couple of all-Australian numbers at the end, accompanied by some Australian flags being waved around, it's good time stuff.
And Ms Wolfe said anyone who was thinking about joining shouldn't worry too much about their ability.
"There aren't auditions - if you're in, you're n," she said.
"Whenever I ask someone they often say 'I can't sing!" Well everybody can sing - some make a better noise than others, but together we make a good sound."
