Health and wellbeing

Research shows that most of us could do more to improve our health.


In Hillingdon there are many things you can do to exercise body and mind.

Staying healthy

Healthy Hillingdon

How to achieve and maintain a healthier lifestyle.

Looking after your feet
Foot care is one of the most important aspects of personal healthcare at any age. Don't put up with painful and uncomfortable feet - read our guide.

Sight, hearing, dental care
Arrange regular check-ups with your GP to keep your sight, hearing and dental care in good health.

Mental health

Everyone feels unhappy at times and ill-health and loneliness may contribute to the feeling.

Keeping warm in winter
Are you, or is someone you know at risk from being cold?

Age UK Hillingdon is again running a "Get Ready for Winter" campaign.

The Council's heater loan scheme is running throughout the winter, offering support to older people when the weather gets colder.

Table tennis Keeping active

Leisure and events
Sports centres, swimming pools, golf courses and more: make the most of local facilities to get regular exercise.

Sex in later life
The younger generation often assume that sexual intimacy disappears once you reach 60. The truth is that desiring sex and having sexual relations doesn't diminish as we get older.

Many organisations now cater for the needs of older and disabled people who want to travel in the UK and abroad.
