Making Life Better Together

Age-friendly Belfast

Keeping Well at Home

Like many countries around the world, Northern Ireland had to lockdown in response to the coronavirus pandemic. We have listened to advice and stayed at home; this helped to reduce the spread of the virus and it reduced the pressure on our NHS, but it hasn’t been easy for older people and other age groups.

Age-friendly Belfast, as part of the Age Friendly Network NI have worked with The Healthy Ageing Research Group based at the University of Manchester and other Greater Manchester organisations, AGE NI, the Public Health Agency, the Frailty Network and Lady Mary Peters to develop a booklet that gives some ideas and suggestions for older people to keep well at home

Staying away from family and friends is hard, particularly during times of stress, this booklet has some ideas about what we can do for ourselves that can help.
