There are huge amounts of health information, advice, ideas, services and products available these days and Our Place has worked to navigate this sea of information. We are not medical experts but we are developing good guidance together.
We have created a Health Information we Trust section where you gain access to a host of health related resources. We have also crafted a selection of Complementary Techniques to help improve your health and quality of life.
We have also have detailed information and help on eight chronic conditions affecting people over the age of 50. Click through below for the section relevant to you.
The advice about chronic conditions and health on this site is compiled from information published by the careful selection of recommended organisations in our Health Information we Trust list. These are edited for ease of use, with comments, additional guidance and insights by Paul Springer – CEO of the Age Related Diseases and Health Trust.
Paul is a Senior Associate of the Royal Society of Medicine and a Fellow of the Royal Society for Public Health, but his suggestions here are based entirely on what he says is his most important credential; in his own words – being a little old man.
Health advice changes constantly as experts learn more. The health service and all the other forms of help and information also keep changing. Our job is to guide you easily to great sources who can deliver what you need: in detail and up to date.
