Members of the reading panel who were part of preparing the “Healthy Ageing in Gwynedd” booklet

Healthy ageing in Gwynedd

That’s why Gwynedd Council and its partners have produced a single booklet which provides practical information about financial matters, remaining independent, health and social opportunities locally.

The “Healthy Ageing in Gwynedd” booklet was produced at the request of the county’s older people, and it has been produced following a series of consultation meetings with older people throughout Gwynedd over the past year.

Gwynedd Council’s Older People’s Champion, Councillor John Wyn Williams, said:

“Older people often tell us that they want to get a hold of details and information about the main agencies that provide services for them. That’s why that the main organisations that provide services for older people in Gwynedd have come together to produce this important resource which provides all the key information in one booklet.

“The booklet includes practical information about health and financial matters, leisure activities, social services and support for those who want to live independently as well as contact details for the key organisations.”

The “Healthy Ageing in Gwynedd” booklet was developed by a partnership of organisations including the Gwynedd Older People’s Strategy, Gwynedd Council, Public Health Wales and third sector agencies. Also Gwynedd’s older people had a chance to have their say about the contents of the booklet as part of a specific reading panel during the production process.

Free copies of the booklet are available for Gwynedd’s older people as well as care workers who work with older people in Gwynedd.
