NHS England has co-produced free guides that provide older people with practical advice to support healthy ageing and caring.
The Healthy Ageing and Healthy Caring guides provide information to older people and carers about staying healthy, fit and independent during the winter months. They identify the support that’s available to help maintain health and wellbeing and which can help older people and carers to stay out of hospital.
The guides have been co-produced with AGE UK, Fire Rescue Service, Carers UK, Carers Trust, Public Heath England, carers networks and people with lived experience including older people. They are part of NHS England’s long term ambition to support older people and carers to look after their own health.
Both these free guides are A4 magazine-style publications that can be ordered in any quantity and delivered for free. Order by calling 0300 123 1002, quoting reference HC2, for the healthy caring, or HA2 for the healthy living guide, or online at www.orderline.dh.gov.uk.
