Healthy Ageing Toolkit to support older people to stay safe and well at home this winter
Norfolk County Council (NCC) has produced a Healthy Ageing Toolkit to support older people to stay safe and well at home this winter.
The Healthy Ageing toolkit is designed for anybody who is supporting older people in the community, including families, carers and older people themselves. The toolkit outlines key information about how to:
- Proactively recognise people living with frailty and/or dementia at an early stage.
- Signpost older people to information and advice about these conditions and healthy ageing in general.
- Work together to link older people, especially those with frailty and/or dementia, into local services that can help them to enjoy the best possible quality of life and remain safe and well at home
All practitioners can all help promote the Healthy Ageing Toolkit by using the following message:-
Cold weather can be tough for everybody, but it’s especially hard for people aged 65 and over. This winter, Norfolk County Council has worked with NHS, District Councils and Third Sector colleagues to produce a healthy ageing toolkit. This toolkit sets out some practical ways that we can all work together to enable older people to stay safe and well at home this winter.
