The impact of cold weather and loneliness on our elderly
Within the community there are a wide variety of services provided by charitable organisations, voluntary services and social services, to support the elderly throughout this difficult season. Working on the frontline, I feel a real issue is professionals actually being aware of the services available. Community nurses are ideally placed to advise, refer and encourage the use of the valuable support networks available. Thus, the key is being familiar and knowledgeable about all your local services to facilitate their use and help the most vulnerable at this time of year.
