The Ageing Hub, Greater Manchester Combined Authorities and partners have produced a video and booklet with advice and support for older people and their family and friends who are not online with practical information to keep well this winter.

At this time of year, shorter days and colder weather mean it’s normal to stay in more and be less active. We’re more likely to become ill from flu and colds, and to feel a bit down. Due to Covid-19, this year it is especially important for those who are older and those with pre-existing health conditions to take extra care and be prepared. Together we can support and protect each other by keeping in touch and looking after ourselves at this time.

Copies of the leaflet are being delivered to many households in Greater Manchester. You can also pick up a copy from your local library or download a copy of the leaflet here and check out their website for even more handy hints.
