Free guides available to support the health and wellbeing of older people and carers


NHS England have co-produced free guides that provide older people with practical advice to support healthy ageing and caring.

The Healthy Ageing and Healthy Caring guides:

  • provides information to older people and carers about staying healthy, fit and independent during the winter months
  • identifies the support that's available to help maintain their heath & wellbeing
  • can help ease some of the winter pressures on the NHS systems.

The guides have been co-produced with AGE UK, Fire Rescue Service, Carers UK, Carers Trust, Public Heath England, carers networks and people with lived experience including older people.

They are part of NHS England long term ambition to support older people and carers to look after their own health.
