Winter Home Insulation Guide for the Elderly
https://www.buildingmaterials.co.uk/nuts-and-bolts/resources/insulation-guide-for-the-elderly

This guide contains plenty of helpful information such as:

  • Practical winter advice and home insulation tips for elderly people, especially those living independently.
  • Helpful tips on how to deal with loneliness, isolation, and looking after the safety and well-being of seniors living alone.
  • Information about energy grants, winter assistance programs, and other cold-weather benefits that the elderly are eligible for.
  • Other useful information on boilers, cold weather payments, and discount and energy grants to help seniors save on energy bills. 

The chapter on dealing with loneliness and isolation might be particularly useful right now, as the elderly will likely be isolated for many months to come.
