Produced by Blaby District Council, the 94-page guide has an extensive range of information about services across the district and county to enable people to enjoy happy, healthy and independent lives.
As one of the Council’s priorities, the guide will enable the ageing population across the District of Blaby to feel involved and valued in their community during later life.
The guide has information on important county-wide contacts for older people, including health and wellbeing, community transport and crime. Details of activities, services and groups for each individual parish are also listed, from heritage groups to sports clubs.
Councillor David Freer, Portfolio Holder for Partnerships and Corporate Services, said: “Residents and professionals alike have told us what a valuable resource the Older Persons’ Guide has been and this new edition is bigger than ever.
“The Council and its partners provide a number of schemes and services that support our ageing population. The new Ageing Well Guide includes information about these and the numerous activities that are taking place across our parishes that are all helping in some way to reduce isolation and improve health and wellbeing.”
The guide can be accessed via www.blaby.gov.uk/ageing-well. Hard copies of the guide will be available from Blaby District Council sites, libraries, GP surgeries and other key community venues.
