Newsletter to help older residents this winter

Midlothian Health and Social Care Partnership, together with Midlothian Voluntary Action, have published a newsletter to help older people make the most of their winter. 

They hope it will support people to keep well, be connected, and be active - with positive ideas, resources and links to local organisations.

A social winter

The newsletter has ideas to get out and about to local organisations. Why not make this winter a social one - where you connect with people regularly and safely, getting some of the warmth of human conversation? A walk in the sunshine or chat with a neighbour can lift your spirits. If you are able and active think about helping others, reach out and feel better yourself!

Stay safe

They also make suggestions about your well-being at home, helping to prevent the risk of falls or supporting you if you are worried about energy prices. Also a little reminder to have your flu and Covid boosters to keep you as well as you can be.

Emergency Help

The back page has a list of all the emergency numbers you might need whatever the weather. 

We are all in it together

“We are all in it together” has perhaps never felt truer. Let’s all pull together, keep connected and help ourselves and each other journey through this winter.
