We have published a set of cards that have been designed for those who work with or support older people. The cards have been produced as part of Plan P, an Iriss project focusing on preventing social isolation and loneliness amongst older people.
Many older people feel lonely, and we know that loneliness has significant negative effects on health and wellbeing. Older people often receive support to address specific health or care needs. These cards prompt those who provide such support to think about whether older people may be at risk of social isolation or loneliness and to think about ways to help them keep connected.
View or download the prompt cards. Print copies are also available on request.
