Keeping warm in winter

Cold homes can have a significant impact on your health. One of the best ways of keeping yourself well during winter is to stay warm.

Approximately 400 vulnerable people die in Nottinghamshire a year due to winter weather and its impact on their health. 

Visit the Age UK and NHS Choices website for help on keeping warm and staying healthy in the cold.

Our top tips for keeping warm:

  • avoid going out in bad weather. If you must go out, wrap up in plenty of layers.
  • try to be active during the day
  • get heating, radiators and boilers serviced
  • use a room thermometer. Your living room should be between 18-21C
  • have at least one warm meal each day and drink warm drinks.
