Staying Well This Winter

Published on 02 October 2018 02:02 PM

Snow and icy conditions are expected across Oxfordshire, making it dangerous for some older people

There are plenty of simple, practical things you can do to help this winter.

❄️ Offer to get in an extra loaf and a pint for an elderly neighbour
❄️ Ask if your neighbour has a pendant alarm and if they would like one, offer to be one of their contact numbers as often people hate to ask
❄️Check if a neighbour would like you to acquire some grit for their path
❄️Offer to sweep the snow away on their path
❄️Check if they have an alternative source of heat and light should the power fail
