The Healthy Caring guide provides information to carers about staying healthy, fit and independent during the winter months and identify the support that is available to help maintain their health and wellbeing.

The guides have been co-produced with Age UK, Fire Rescue Service, Carers UK, Carers Trust, Public Health England, carers networks and people with lived experience, including older people. They will be of particular interest to CCGs, GP Practices, Pharmacists, community health networks and older people and carers living in the community. They are part of NHS England long-term ambition to support older people and carers to look after their own health.

Both these free guides are A4 magazine-style publications that can be ordered in any quantity and delivered for free, through Prolog, by calling 0300 123 1002, quoting reference HC2, for the Healthy Caring guide, or HA2 for the Healthy Living guide, or online at www.orderline.dh.gov.uk.
