We all know an elderly man or woman, whether they are relatives, family friends or neighbours, spend a little extra time looking out for them over the cold winter months. There are a few ways you can help the elderly:

Keep them warm- Making sure they are warm on those extra cold days, checking their heating timings are set, even giving them some additional blankets to keep them cosy while watching the tv or reading.

Health- Winter weather tends to be the time of year many of us suffer from a cold or the flu, and the elderly are even more susceptible to these illnesses. Keep an eye out for their health and assist them in seeking medical advice should they need to.

Food- Heading out in the freezing cold and ice can be a difficult task for the elderly, that’s why helping out with a food shop is extremely beneficial.
