Winter can be a very difficult time for older people and this year it is even more difficult. We have a free winter wellbeing pack aimed at those older people who are most vulnerable or frail.
The pack contains hints and tips on keeping warm and well, useful contacts, a handy room thermometer, some basic exercises plus an exercise band and information about our services and support.
This is a posted hard copy pack, so to get a copy please get in touch below or contact us on 01254 266620
As the days get colder then soup is definately on the menu. If you are a soup fan then why not hold a soup social event for friends and family or work colleagues to raise money for our local work with older people. Winter can be a very difficult time for many older people and with our face to face fundraising still badly impacted your ongoing support is very much needed
It is important to us that older people from all backgrounds and identities feel wecome within our organisation, services and activities.
