Coping in cold weather
As we all know the cold weather is upon us and our clients and other vulnerable people may face dangerous situations in particularly cold weather conditions.
All of our carers know what to look out for and our care packages ensure that our client’s full needs are met. This includes ensuring that they have the appropriate heating, clothing and meals.
During spells of cold weather we try to encourage all of our clients to:
• Close curtains at night to keep out drafts
• Have regular hot drinks and eat at least one hot meal a day
• Stay active and take exercise – even if it is chair or bed exercises
• Wrap up warm
