Longford, Let’s Stay Connected
As part of National wellbeing In this Together campaign and Longford County Council’s ongoing support to older people in the community, Longford County Council in partnership with other agencies, has produced leaflets to keep older people in the County connected, active and encouraged to mind their mental health. This initiative is targeted at older people that are not online and do not have access to technology.
Longford County Council developed 3 leaflets for Longford, Ballymahon and Granard Municipal Districts by providing a wide range of helpline contact details in each Municipal District.
The leaflets also include age friendly home exercises and tips provided by Longford Sports Partnership and encouraging people to stay active at home and on the move.
The leaflets contain great resources and information from Longford Libraries, as books and reading are a source of joy and inspiration. Longford Libraries provided great resources and information in the leaflets on arrangements for delivery of books and invited people who may have access to technology to look at a wide variety of their online services, including tutorials and talks on gardening, cooking, and tips to mind their mental health and build resilience.
Longford County Council hopes the leaflet will provide people with some support to stay connected, be active and mind their mental health at this difficult time and expressed gratitude to the partners who contributed to the leaflet. This is a difficult and anxious time for everyone, but people should be reassured that there are organizations working hard behind the scenes to support those who are vulnerable and ensure that our communities remain strong in these challenging times. Longford County Council is extremely grateful also to Longford Civil Defence and volunteers who are supporting the delivery of the leaflets throughout the County. They have already distributed over 1,500 copies of the leaflets.
