Age UK Warwickshire is asking relatives, friends and neighbours to pay a little more attention to older people during the coldest months.
The charity is appealing for people to do simple things for the elderly such as ensuring hot drinks and a hot meal are available to them, there is heating and hot water in their homes and they are physically well.
Age UK is also providing certain facts about staying healthy in the cold, including the right room temperatures, protecting your fingers, mouth and head from the elements, and keeping windows closed.
Devices to provide peace of mind, which also encourage independence, are available to rent.
