      The aim of this booklet is to help you age well and avoid becoming frail through general health and wellbeing advice. COVID-19 has made it more difficult to engage in normal social and physical group activities. We have had to adapt our lifestyles and regular social connections. This booklet reflects the hope we all feel as normal routines return. Included is information about a range of activities, services and agencies available in your community to help you age well. As healthcare workers, we want to support you to live well at home. By remaining active and engaged in your local community, you can delay the onset of frailty. This booklet encourages you to look after your health and wellbeing and to feel positive about the future. Now is the time to invest in your physical and mental health so you can reap the benefits in years to come.
