Halloween can be a fun time to celebrate with the family.

However, when you live alone and you’re slightly older, it can sometimes be an uncomfortable time.

If you’re worried about the people that may be calling at your door, AgeUK have provided some good tips to follow.

★ Always put the door chain on and look out of the window or spy hole to see who’s there before opening the door.

★ Take particular care if there’s more than one person on your doorstep.

★ Only open the door if you feel safe to do so. If you’re in any doubt or don’t feel safe, don’t – it’s fine not to answer the door if you don’t want to.

If you’re really worried, you can enquire and request the Future living Care assistant to come round and spend some time with you in the evening.
