Be Informed

It is really important that people get accurate information from reliable sources. Over half of people between the ages of 65 and 74 are not online. Without the ability to confidently navigate the internet, a significant proportion of our population are effectively barred from being fully engaged members of society – in the current COVID-19 health emergency they are relying on media and word of mouth for official information. People who are online should share the official Department of Health and HSE information with their older family members, friends and clients to make sure that they are informed and make sure they have phone numbers for local community services.
