Don’t forget to check on your elderly neighbours

I know that everyone leads busy lives but, if you have elderly neighbours, do keep an eye out for them. They are more vulnerable than the rest of us, especially in extreme weather conditions such as heatwaves and when winter is here.

Think neighbour, when you receive alerts for severe conditions.

These are the times when the elderly and those needing care are especially vulnerable. This situation is compounded with the current cut-backs in services, resulting in fewer people available to check on those who are at risk to ensure that they are safe and well.

Being a good neighbour also means to pop round and have a cuppa, as so many older people are lonely and their four walls are their prison. In fact, they would have more company if they were in prison.  When you visit, you may be the only person they have spoken to for days.

Remember, your elderly neighbour’s welfare is everyone’s problem like it is for elder abuse. We all need to play our part.
