Do you ever make sure that elderly people are well in the winter?

With the winter nearly here yet again do you ever check to make sure that your elderly people who live near you or that you know have everything they need as well as that they are warm enough.

i always go to my gran mother house to check if it's everything ok, i also add some wood in her stove if it's too cold inside, and i help her to do something that it's difficult for her. Ner me there aren't other olp people, so i can't help anyone.

When I lived in New York there was an old man we would check in on. However now in New Mexico there is really only one couple across the street from me but her daugher and son-in-law live next door to me. So they of course are always over helping out. Thank goodness we don't get winters like NY with their snow but it does get cold here and the wind at times is crazy. Its a nice and kind thing to do especially since we will all be there one day and would hope that someone would be looking out for us one day.

Hi jugsjugs..How are you doing today? Great I hope Before I moved into the camper on my mother-in-laws property I only checked oh her during the winter months or the very hot summer days. But now that I have lived here I come to know some more elderly people on the street. They have been very kind to us and because of that I will make it a point to keep an eye on them this winter and future months too. Great discussion jugs and you have a great day as well..

There is a man in a wheel chair in my neighborhood that I help up and down the sidewalk. Also a man that goes for walks and I check on him too. He is pretty good at getting out but cann't get back in when he comes home sometimes so I help him then. I am out walking usually too and we converse and I just help him when he needs it. He doesn't say much. I think he has had a stroke. But he does smile or indicate what he needs with expressions and grunts. Both are very proud and I feel like I make them mad sometimes when I come to their aid. I try to just make a funny remark like the darn thing does that to me sometimes too or something to defray the current of the moment. The dears.
