Pen Portraits


Keeping Warm in Later Life (KWILLT)

Subject Keywords: A range of products have been developed using the findings to support staff to identify older people who are at risk from being cold and plan and provide services to help them.

The products are all based on six groups of vulnerable older people who have been identified as being at risk of being cold for different reasons. Each group represents a ‘segment’ of older people in society and contains people who share a combination of factors which influence them in keeping warm. For each group a pen portrait has been developed. The six pen portraits are not real people but are case studies which summarise and illustrate the experience and situations of older people at risk of being cold. Across the board we have found that all these groups are poorly informed about some aspect of keeping warm.
