Staying fit and well in winter

22nd January 2019

It can be harder for older people to stay fit and well throughout the colder months. It’s important that older people and their families and carers are supported to stay well throughout winter and the NHS offers guides that provide practical advice to support healthy ageing and caring.

The Healthy Ageing Guide helps people to stay physically and mentally well by providing hints and tips on how to keep fit and independent, and the Healthy Caring Guide provides information and advice to carers about staying healthy themselves and identifies support available to help carers maintain their health and wellbeing.

The NHS Practical Guide to Healthy Ageing can be picked up in GP surgeries and some pharmacies or download it

The Practical Guide to Healthy Caring is now available via download on the NHS England website here.
