Help someone who is feeling lonely
Loneliness is something that can affect us all, young or old, at any point in our lives. There are plenty of simple actions you can take to help lift someone out of loneliness and in doing so, it might help you to feel less lonely too.

New ‘live safely with Covid’ campaign

• be kind – respect people wearing masks or keeping their distance
• be informed – know your level of risk and get good, trusted advice on managing it
• be vaccinated or boosted – ensure you are vaccinated when invited

• be safe – manage your risk when socially mixing (hands, face, space, fresh air)
• be prepared – if you get Covid, stay at home and get early treatment,
• be supported – Herts Help offer support on 0300 123 4044

Develop your strength and fitness
We should do muscle strengthening exercises twice a week. Carrying food shopping in from the car or walking uphill may help  build strength.
Plyometric training involves jumping and skipping and improves strength, muscle size & speed, and coordination.

This year's theme is UNDERSTANDING & DIAGNOSIS as it is better to know how our brains are functioning as we age and know how to get advice and support for ourselves or anyone we know showing early signs of something more than normal age related memory decline.

There is a great deal of practical guidance and information on what next steps to take, what to expect during and after the diagnosis process, and what support the Alzheimer’s Society offers throughout. Because they believe it’s better to know.

There will be several local drop in events during action week where you can find out more about memory health and support. Please come along for a cuppa, cake and a chat on:
