Free Health Guides for Older People and Carers


NHS England has produced two free guides that provide older people and carers with practical advice about staying healthy, fit and independent during the winter months and identifying the support that’s available to help them maintain their own heath & well-being.

The guides are part of NHS England's long-term ambition to equip people to look after their own health and have been co-produced with AGE UK. They will also be of interest to healthcare organisations and professionals that work with the elderly and carers.

The guides can be ordered in any quantity and delivered for FREE - just call 0300 123 1002 quoting reference HC2 for the Healthy Caring Guide; or HA2 for the Healthy Living Guide. Copies can be also be ordered online - www.orderline.dh.gov.uk.
