Coronavirus and beyond...
We are supporting older people in the community with meals, visits, home help, calls, advice, day clubs, dementia and even a little singing!
Are you finding it hard to care for yourself or a relative during lockdown? We offer up to 6 weeks of free support in an older persons home, which can include shopping, cooking and housework as well as liaising with GP's and other services in the area.
You might be worrying how you will heat your home this winter or need advice on a relatives care. Our Information & Advice team have a wealth of experience dealing with any issues that affect later life, so let us put your mind at rest.
Lockdown can make us feel increasingly isolated and lonely for many reasons. So whether you want to learn how to video call your family, find local support groups or you'd like a regular chat with someone, don't hesitate to contact us.
Make sure the older people you care about have the support they need during lockdown
Our volunteers have been delivering shopping, telephoning lonely older people, delivering activity packs, doing doorstep chats and generally doing good in the community. If you have some time to give we would love to hear from you.
We are raising money to send our singing bus to as many care homes as we can this Christmas. It costs £125 per trip so anything you can donate today will spread some joy to those who need it most.
We need your support more than ever during the pandemic. So whether you run, bake, cycle or make, we have lots of fundraising ideas for you. You can be sure, your money will go back into helping the older people in your community.
