Serious health problems – such as chest infections, heart attacks and strokes – are more common in the colder months. According to Age UK, each winter one person dies every seven minutes from living in cold conditions. With the right awareness and assessment tools we can all play our part in helping the elderly and vulnerable stay warm and safe in the winter months.
A cold home can make existing health conditions worse and bring on new ones. It can also have a negative effect on mental health. This course looks at the importance of keeping vulnerable people warm in winter as well as covering the risk factors to watch out for when assessing wellbeing in the home.
