T’is the Season for ‘Flu

Influenza (flu) is a very infectious viral illness spread by coughs & sneezes, especially common in winter.  It can particularly affect the frail/elderly/pregnant women and worsen conditions like diabetes or lung disease.  It can be spread very quickly in a residential or nursing home.

Flu symptoms come on quickly, usually include fever & aching muscles and limit the ability to continue daily activities.

Treat the symptoms:


keep warm,

drink plenty of fluids and

take painkillers as necessary.

People in high-risk groups may need to contact a GP if complications eg. chest infections occur.


There are many types of ‘flu virus – the annual ‘flu jab & good hygiene can greatly reduce the risk of catching ‘flu, protecting yourself and those around you.
