Dear Mrs Stanley,

 

I hope you and your loved ones are alright in these strange times. It feels like a different world to just a couple of months ago – not just for older people but for all of us here at Age UK as well.

As this situation develops we’re constantly reviewing how older people are affected and what most urgently needs to change. I’m so grateful to every one of you who’s been in touch to tell us about what you’re struggling with, and I want to assure you that we’re doing everything we can to make sure the Government listens to and acts on your concerns.

Our work to protect the interests of older people has never felt more crucial, and because of your input we’re currently focusing our time and energy on:
 

  • Working with the Government to find a way for all older people to get their food shopping safely, without having to go online.

 

  • Calling out age discrimination in health policies, to make sure that age alone is never used as a basis to restrict treatment or to propose do-not-resuscitate orders.

 

  • Fighting for better PPE and testing in social care settings, to save the lives of older people and the staff that care for them.

 

  • Putting pressure on banks and The Post Office to make sure older people are able to access cash, despite being told to stay indoors.

You can read more about the progress we’ve made on these issues in our latest blog. With your support we’re making a real impact, and we’ll keep pushing for these changes until we win.

I will be in touch soon with more news, including an update on how we’re tackling loneliness. In the meantime, please stay safe and remember you can call our free advice line if you need support – it’s open 8am to 7pm every day on 0800 169 65 65.


Best wishes,

 



Eorann

Following the government’s decision to extend the lockdown, we’re sharing advice on how to stay active and healthy, as well as what we’ve been doing to continue to support those who rely on our services. Without you, we wouldn’t be able to continue our work, and your wellbeing matters during these challenging times. 

 

Staying active and healthy at home
Looking after your physical and mental health is even more important with restrictions on movement and social distancing. If you are looking for advice on keeping active while staying home and staying safe, check out our resources on the website.   

 

Download the COVID Symptom Tracker app 
We’ve joined several UK leading charities promoting a coronavirus symptom tracker app developed by Kings College London and health science company ZOE. For this vital research to build an accurate picture of the virus, we urgently need more over-70s, including people with underlying health conditions, to take part in this study and self-report.

 

For over-70s without access to a smartphone, family, friends or carers can log daily health reports on their behalf. Please take part or help us to promote this vital research if you can

 

Home Truths – keeping mentally healthy 
As part of our Home Truths series, Christine writes about keeping mentally healthy during the coronavirus lockdown. You can read Christine’s blog here. If you, or someone you know, needs support with their mental health, we have a list of resources available on our website or please call our helpline on 0800 319 6789.  

 

Take on the 2.6 Challenge 
This Sunday, to mark what would have been the London Marathon– the world’s biggest one-day fundraising event– the 2.6 Challenge aims to plug the funding gap for UK charities. Can you take on a challenge and raise money to support our vital services? Design your own challenge related to the numbers 2.6 or 26 and sign up today!

 

I’d like to end this week’s email by saying a huge thank you to everyone involved in helping us to campaign for fair treatment for older people, and to provide local support for older relatives, neighbours and friends across the UK. I’d also like to thank everyone signing up to events like the 2.6 Challenge, and those who’ve shared helpful tips and suggestions we can share with others during these challenging times.  

Wishing you a safe and healthy week ahead,

NHS & Care fears

Along with the rest of the nation, the NPC has been shocked and frustrated by the lack of Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) and testing for staff and patients in our hospitals, our care homes and across the entire care sector.

 

Thanking our key workers

Our wonderful NHS staff, care workers and key workers have been on the frontline of this awful pandemic from the start. The NPC wants to take the opportunity to say a big ‘thank you’ to them all.

 


and much much more
