Since we have reached mid-September and the weather is begining to turn, I thought it might be time to think about putting together a list of winter essentials for those with chronic illnesses.
Please feel free to share any further suggestions.
So far, I have thought of:
Extra layers of clothing/blankets,
Extra medication (incl. prescribed and basics like paracetamol)
A torch and spare batteries
A First Aid Kit
Spare 'phone charger
An extra set of house keys and a small amount of emergency cash (kept in an agreed safe place, of course)
A list of emergency contacts and medical information (incl. Known allergies, current medication etc)
An emergency hygiene kit incl. waterless shampoo, body wash, toothbrush etc
I've also come up with a list household essentials which I'll post in my next comment. .
