  • If you are clearing ice and snow from paths and steps never use warm water as it will become much more dangerous later on. 

 

  • Is it absolutely necessary to go out? Could a member of your family, friend or neighbour go to the shop for you? Or can you get a home delivery for your essential shopping?

 

  • Speak with your GP surgery and local pharmacy to see if you can get your prescriptions delivered to your home using the automatic electronic prescriptions service.

 

  • Check your central heating is working correctly and the thermostat is set to the right temperature and programmed to come on at the required times.

 

  • Wear layers of clothes rather than one thick one, this will help you to keep warm.

 

  • Think about having smaller more regular meals, try having something warming like soup.
