Taking care of your health and wellbeing

Do you want to continue living at home?

We know it's important to stay independent for as long as possible, in your own home.

As you get older, or if you have health issues that affect how you feel overall, doing normal things like eating healthy, keeping active, and going out may become more challenging. Simple activities, like cooking nutritious meals or remembering to drink enough water, are really important for staying independent. By taking steps to look after yourself, like maintaining a healthy weight, and staying connected with your community, can lower your chances of getting sick and help you live a healthier life.
