Be a good neighbour in severe weather, says county

With another spell of severe weather on the way, Denbighshire Social Services is urging people to be a good neighbour and keep an eye on the elderly and vulnerable.

The current freezing spell continues, with heavy snow forecast for Thursday night into Friday and an amber alert issued by the Met Office.

The council is now asking people to help protect the vulnerable.

Councillor Bobby Feeley, Cabinet Lead Member for Well-being and Independence, said: “We are asking people to take care of our most vulnerable by keeping an eye on them and making sure they are safe and well.

“If people have neighbours, friends or relatives that are unwell, they are encouraged to visit,  making sure they have everything they need and to offer with any daily tasks such as shopping. It is also important to check they are eating properly and keeping their property warm.

“You may be the only visitor they will have so it is a question of being kind and considerate. The severe weather is getting closer and is likely to last for another two to three days, so we want to make sure people do not feel vulnerable or isolated.

“Showing care and compassion towards the elderly or vulnerable will really make a difference to their quality of life."

* If you have any concerns about a vulnerable person, please call the Single Point of Access, on  0300 456 1000, or for out of hours, the Emergency Duty Team, on 0345 0533116.
