Keeping Well at Home: A Booklet
The Keeping Well at Home printed booklet is for older people who are digitally excluded. This free resource is specifically targeted at those who are currently unable to go outside, or have limited or no access to online resources.
The booklet contains practical information on:
- home exercises
- mental wellbeing
- how to stay connected to others
- nutrition and hydration
There are lots of ideas and suggestions to keep well at home in the booklet. Together we can support and protect each other by looking after ourselves at this time. It is written for those with less or no access to online resources.
The national response to Covid-19 has relied heavily on digital technologies to keep members of the public up-to-date on the latest government advice and provide support for those asked to self-isolate. The move from face-to-face interaction towards digital communication disproportionately excludes older people – one of the groups hardest hit by Covid-19 – many of whom do not have access to the internet or have been trained how to use it.
Please download, print and distribute the booklet, and we hope you find it helpful and share it with your friends, family and community.
