Keeping older people well in the winter!

The winter months are particularly difficult for older people who are socially isolated and they may experience physical and mental health problems as a direct result of their loneliness. Why not try the Orchard House remedy?


The impact that loneliness and social isolation can have on the physical, mental and social health of isolated older people is well known. Some research shows that lacking social connections is as damaging to health as smoking 15 cigarettes a day.
 Because of this lonely people are more likely to visit their GP, use more medication and have a higher incidence of falls. They are also more likely to enter early into a nursing home.
