  • °C (64°F) is the ideal temperature for your bedroom and 21°C (70°F) is the ideal temperature for your living  
  • The elderly cant sometimes pay for that temperature 

In the last year all the has being a 30 % increase in deaths to elderly people due to a stop in cold weather payments for the elderly most of these people have been penalised due to government's cut backs my aim is to set up a fund to generate money that will give these people access to use to pay for heating this winter and make sure we dont increase our neglect to the older generation I see there needs to be serious concerns for thes people and want to do my bit


In 2013 31000 deaths connected to winter weather

Mild December followed  by coldest march on record

NHS scrambling for more nurses and doctors 

Fact we need to act swift and now

The solutions

  • 64°F) is the ideal temperature for your bedroom and 21°C (70°F) is the ideal temperature for your living room. Check your thermostat or use a room thermometer to monitor temperature.
  • Breathing in cold air can increase the risk of chest infections. If you go out, put a scarf around your mouth to warm up the air before you breathe it in. If you stay in, make sure you keep your windows closed, particularly overnight in the bedroom (even if it’s your normal habit to leave them open).
  • Stay active and when you are indoors try not to sit still for more than an hour, if you can get up. Walk around or make a hot drink (or take one to someone you know can’t get out).
  • Eat well. It’s important to eat well, especially in the winter.
  • Have at least one hot meal a day and have regular hot drinks, as they help to keep you warm.
