Our older residents are more affected by this present crisis than most. This page will include guidance and advice to help support our older residents.
Keeping Well this Winter
This booklet has been created by Greater Manchester Combined Authority in collaboration with the Healthy Ageing Research Group, linked to the Manchester Institute for Collaborative Research on Ageing, based at the University of Manchester.
This booklet updates an earlier version, adds new sections and has lots of ideas and suggestions to help us keep active and connected, stay safe and well, and manage our money and home. It is written for those with less or no access to online resources and includes a list of useful contact numbers.
Keeping Well at Home
Working with the University of Manchester we have produced a guide to help older people keep well at home.
The guide is packed full of health and dietary advice, including a programme of standing and sitting strength and balance exercises.
It gives useful tips on keeping minds active, eating and drinking at home and safety.
