Keeping Well at Home booklet launched
Age Friendly Network NI and the Public Health Agency have produced a 'Keeping Well at Home' booklet for older people who are digitally excluded while self-isolating during COVID-19.
The free resource is targeted at those who are currently unable to go outside, or have limited or no access to online resources.
The booklet contains practical information on:
- home exercises
- mental wellbeing
- staying safe from scammers
- safety in the home
- nutrition and hydration
- managing your energy supplies
- useful contacts
To coincide with the booklet, Age NI have teamed up with Lady Mary Peters to launch Move with Mary, an exercise programme aimed specifically at keeping older people moving during the extended Covid-19 lockdown.
If you would like to receive a Move with Mary DVD or Keeping Well at Home Booklet in the post you can order them from the Age NI website here.
