With the temperature stooping to the lowest in the cities of United Kingdom, it is natural to be concerned about your aging parents’ safety when you are not with them. But being worried is not going to resolve the issue of your parents and grandparents safety.
Did you know that the probability of fall increases significantly in winter?
As the temperature drops, the senior citizens are more prone to health complications such as hypothermia, high fever, etc.
Keeping this in mind, today we are going to talk through some tips that can help ensure your elderly family members stay safe in this cold weather:
- GET INDOOR VIDEO SURVEILLANCE:
It is understandable that you can not always stay at home with your elderly family members, but you sure can make sure that they are safe and secure at all times while you are in the office. Install an indoor video camera to monitor your loved one’s movements. Connect it to your smartphone or laptop to assure that they are safe at all times.

Make sure that you and your family members from elderly to kids are adequately dressed in layers. Low temperature can easily lead to fever and hypothermia. Wear caps, gloves, socks all the time except sleeping.
- STAY PREPARED FOR POWER OUTAGES:
Power outages are more frequent in winters, which can lead to fall and severe injuries. It is always recommended to keep rechargeable lights and battery powered radios for an emergency. Keep food in stock, and save yourself and your elderly family members covered.
