Older People Living Alone In Southport Urged To Take Care In The Cold Weather

A manager from a care home in Southport is urging older people living alone in the community to take extra care in the cold weather. With temperatures dropping across the country, Christine Hunt, from Anchor's Thomas Henshaw Court has offered advice to older people living by themselves.  She said older people are especially susceptible to the cold but there are steps neighbours and relatives can take to protect them. Christine, whose care home is rated Good by regulator the Care Quality Commission, added:- "Anchor is urging the wider community to keep a close eye on elderly neighbours and their older relatives who may live alone and are more vulnerable in the cold weather. Older people should check room temperatures regularly. Day time room temperatures should be set to a minimum of 21 degrees and 18 degrees at night. We recommend older people have regular hot drinks and eat at least one hot meal a day if possible. Eating regularly helps to keep up energy levels up during winter. And a well nourished body is going to be stronger and therefore more resilient against the cold. Wrap up warm and wear several light layers of warm clothes. Wear footwear with a good grip if you need to go outside on cold days. Take extra care if you go out." For more information on Thomas Henshaw Court, contact:- 0800 731 2020.
