Winter is a difficult time of year for everyone, but particularly for senior citizens.

As temperatures drop and nights draw in, the likelihood of accidents and injuries increases.

Accidents Direct have produced an informal new guide which offers 25 top tips to help elderly people stay safe throughout the coldest months.

Here are three of the most important tips:

1) Do not walk on icy/snowy paths - instead look for routes which are dry or have been cleared

2) Wall mounted heaters are preferable to portable ones as they do not pose a tripping hazard

3) Replace old slippers and canes as these can become worn out and smooth, offering little protection from winter conditions
