Our recent Twitter activity

Thank you to Berwyn & District u3a for making Rebecca our Community Navigator and her colleague Emma from @BRCNorthWalesER feel very welcome this afternoon at your meeting, @U3A_UK

Happy Valentines Day from all of us at @AgeConnectWales You can help spread the love by talking to the older people in your life about falls. Falls are not an inevitable part of ageing and we are here to help #FallsAwareness2020

For older people falls mean more than bump or a bruise. Falls can lead to fractures, breaks & a trip to hospital. We want to reduce the number of falls by sharing information & advice. Can you retweet and help us spread our message? #FallsAwareness2020

Thank you to the Spoa team @DenbighshireCC for inviting us to your Power Hour to talk about our services and projects.

#StaySafe #Tip
Have you had your blood pressure checked recently? If you feel dizzy or faint when you stand up you are more likely to be at risk from falling. Get your BP checked at the GP or in your local pharmacy. #FallsAwareness2020

We can all play a part in challenging ageism and we’ve received some great pledges as part of our #EverydayAgeism campaign!

What will your pledge be?
