Older People's Health and Wellbeing
Supporting older people in maintaining a healthy lifestyle
Our aim is for people to remain independent and well for as long as possible, and in a place of their choosing. We also want people in West Berkshire to have a greater say in how local services are provided - you can do this by contacting Healthwatch West Berkshire.
West Berkshire Council services for older people
More information on some of the services in the Guide to Keeping Healthy and Happy is included on the West Berkshire Council website.
West Berkshire Council's Adult Social Care team deal with enquiries and requests for help, including support in helping you stay in your own home and to be as independent as possible.
If you're worried about trips or falls in your home, you can find out more information on their Falls Prevention page.
Sports and Leisure
Our sports and leisure centres offer reduced-price entry to swimming pools (where available) for our residents aged 60 or over. There's swimming, aqua/aerobics, but also yoga and tea dances available at our centres. Or, for something outdoors, you could join one of our organised and led Wellbeing Walks groups to take in some of our beautiful countryside while staying fit and healthy.
