    Don't worry your food in both the fridge and the freezer should be ok we were off for longer than that just recently, but as long as you are ok do they make sure that you have a torch with batteries etc in it and do they take long to get to you

    you should get another one, perhaps your carer could get one for you, it would give you a little light

    Get another small torch with a hanging hook on it and attach it to your wheelchair so it stays on there all the time that way if it happens again you don't have to search for the torch as it will be on your chair
