With snow and very cold conditions currently across the UK, please remember to check on older friends, neighbours and grandparents to make sure they have everything they need to stay safe and warm.
Ice and snow can make it very difficult for some older people to get out and about. When the weather conditions last as long as they have, this can be very isolating. By popping round or giving them a ring to see if they need anything, you can make a huge difference to their day and wellbeing.
There are lots of ideas of how you can help older people during the cold weather on the Age UK website website: http://bit.ly/2GP68oy
