Cold weather advice has been issued to help elderly people keep warm during the snowy spell.
As temperatures dropped as low as -10 across the county, NHS Berkshire offered tips to help people stay warm.
The cold weather can cause serious health problems, especially for people with a long-term condition aged 65 or over.
Things that can help yourself, friends and relatives stay healthy in cold weather includes:
Look after yourself and others. On cold days try to avoid going outside; but if you do need to remember to wrap up warm. If you have an older neighbour or relative, look out for them during winter to make sure that they are safe and well.
Keep curtains drawn and doors closed to block out draughts.
Have regular hot drinks and at least one hot meal a day if possible. Eating regularly helps keep energy levels up during winter.
Wear several light layers of warm clothes rather than one chunky layer.
Keep as active as possible.
Heat your home well. By setting your heating to the right temperature (18–21°C or 64–70°F), you can keep your home warm and your bills as low as possible.
