The Ultimate Heatwave Toolkit


With summer officially starting on the 21 June, care providers will once again need to ensure people in their care remain safe in the event of hot weather.

It is really important that you have an effective plan. Severe heat is a real danger to older and disabled people living in care homes. In the UK there are over 2,000 heat related deaths per year and some of the most vulnerable are those over 75 and those who live on their own or in care homes.

To help you plan, QCS has created The Ultimate Heatwave Toolkit. In this toolkit, you will find:

– A Heatwave Checklist to aid you in planning for a heatwave and help you to keep your residents cool and safe.

– A Top Tips Heatstroke Poster to remind your staff of the symptoms, how to prevent heatstroke and the first aid they could carry out if symptoms are seen.
