This winter hundreds of older people in Norwich will struggle to stay warm and well, and this year we are also living with Coronavirus, which we know can have more of an impact the older we are.
Our Winter Well campaign is designed to help older people and their families prepare for the winter months and offer support to those who may be worried or struggling.
How we can help you be well and warm
Every winter 25,000 older people in England and Wales don’t survive the cold weather, and this year, months of shielding or reduced contact has taken its toll.
As we head into winter, the vital services we provide are needed now more than ever.
We can help you, or someone you know, stay well throughout the colder months by:
- Offering financial support and advice for winter bills or heating repairs
- Giving information on how to make your home winter-ready
- Providing blankets, hot water bottles, and warm clothing
- Helping to stay active at home with activity instructors who provide home visits and/or online class
- Offering group outdoor walking groups
- Offering friending through our Telephone Befriending service
- Help getting online and digitally connected with loved ones
- Helping finding shopping or prescription delivery services
