Staying well this year means doing all we can to be prepared to stay well and stay connected.
Looking after yourself – Be prepared
Get the Flu Vaccine – this free vaccine is readily available to protect older and vulnerable people – even if you are feeling fit.
Shopping – stay stocked up on basics like rice, pasta and canned goods like soup and beans. Check what arrangements your local shops have in place for deliveries – many developed new services and priority slots for older people from the first lockdown.
Personal Alarm – a body-worn personal alarm button can be used to call for help in the event of a fall – especially reassuring for older people living on their own.
Health Tracking – Click here to learn more about our free wellness and health tracking program.
Medication – Make sure you have enough medication and food –
Hydration – Keep a bottle of water in case your supply is interrupted.
Prepare for a power shortage with flashlights and batteries.
Keep a mobile or portable phone well charged.
Keep a list of emergency numbers somewhere handy.
Keep Moving – Being active is proven to give you a boost. Try not to sit still for more than an hour at a time. Regular movement is important for strength, balance and mobility. Aim for at least 30 minutes of activity each day.
Eat Well and Stay Hydrated – keep to a routine and eat regularly, include a variety of fruit and veg and fibre, avoid too many treats, limit alcohol and drink plenty of fluids.
Do Something You Enjoy Every Day – keeping busy takes effort, but daily tasks give great satisfaction. Find pleasure in things you now have the time for:
a book you’ve been meaning to read, a forgotten hobby, or a project you never had time to complete.
Small wins can build motivation and momentum.
