Well-Being Packs

Published on 29 July 2020 10:49 AM

As part of our Live Well Wakefield funded, COVID response plan, Age UK Wakefield District have produced 1,000 ‘Well-Being Packs’.

As part of our Live Well Wakefield funded, COVID response plan, Age UK Wakefield District have produced 1,000 ‘Well-Being Packs’, themed around the Community Fund, Time for Tea initiative.

This pack has been put together by a team of staff at Age UK Wakefield District as part of our Organisation's response to the Coronavirus pandemic. The aim was to provide resources for the older people we work with, that are tried and tested.

We are now in distribution and this is being done by some of our external partners, as well as our internal teams.  External partners distributing the packs include: Alzheimer’s Society, Carers Wakefield & District, Live Well Wakefield, Turning Point, Wakefield District Housing and some of the Positive Mental Health Network members.

The contents include a 12-page Newsletter, with sections for interactive mental stimulation and ideas for keeping well physically and mentally.  It also contains a Welcome letter, a Mental Well-Being leaflet created by our Wraparound Team, the updated Age UK Wakefield District Services Leaflet, the 24/7 Mental Health Phoneline poster, some local information, and a feedback form, with a freepost envelope.

The Well-being packs are designed for our most isolated clients – mainly those living on their own or caring for partners.

Though later in the lockdown period than planned, the distribution will focus on people living on their own or caring for partners, those with Long Term Conditions and people over 70 years of age, who remain anxious about leaving their homes.

At Age UK Wakefield we value your opinion.  If you have read our Well-Being pack we would be grateful if you could complete our feedback form below and return to helenmorris@ageukwd.org.uk

It is our intention to create more Well-being packs, with additional funding, hopefully producing one every quarter. Depending upon resources, we would be happy to take requests for quantities from other partners in care.
