Health and Well-Being
Malvern Hills District Council and Worcestershire County Council's Public Health team are working in partnership to improve the health and well-being of local residents, to ensure they are healthier, live longer and have a better quality of life. In order to achieve this there needs to be a greater emphasis on prevention, early intervention and early help.
Older People's Showcase
The Older People's Showcase took place on Monday, 10 October at the Regal Theatre in Tenbury in support of World Mental Health Day. The event was an opportunity for older people, their family, friends and carers to find out about services and activities available in the area to help residents age well and live independently in their own homes for longer. Activities included free health checks for those aged 40 to 74, a Dementia Friends session to find out how to support people with the condition, and a Strength and Balance taster session.
Your Life, Your Choice Worcestershire – a website that works for You
Your life, Your Choice is a new website full of information and advice about how people can stay well and independent – and plan for their long-term future. The website helps people find out about support available in the community, and about all kinds of care services for older people and adults with disabilities. You can search by category, keyword or location – so finding information, products and services could not be easier. Please visit: Your Life your choice.
You can still visit the Worcestershire County Council Health and Wellbeing page for information on some services, the Worcestershire Health and Wellbeing Board and the Worcestershire Joint Strategic Needs Assessment, where you can search for local health and wellbeing data.
