Good Neighbours at Christmas time

May I just wish you and yours a very restful and peaceful Christmas and fun seeing in the New Year.

Over the past month as have battled the snow and ice and freezing temperatures my thoughts always turn to the older people in our community and the need for them to be stay warm and not be at risk of Hypothermia. The next couple of months are likely to stay the same so if you get the opportunity to pop in and see a neighbour or relative I am sure they will appreciate the company and you can do a few very simply non intrusive safety checks.

The key thing about Hypothermia is that is creeps up on people without them realising, and it’s this that makes it a killer. So pop round and simply check, does the place feel cold, yet the resident says its fine, you ask and they say they are not cold, but when you shake hands they certainly feel cold, they may be drowsy or fatigued, their speech may be slurred and they may be pale and their face puffy, or they might seem a bit confused. If you have a doubt call Customer First on 0808 800 4005 and someone will help.

Keep Warm and keep safe and have a lovely Christmas and a very happy New Year.
