The Good Neighbour Service is a scheme launched to help the older residents of Tring and Berkhamsted.
The service supports older residents who are unwell, lonely, disabled and those who are facing a crisis and do not have family or a good neighbour to turn to.
Types of help and support the Good Neighbour Service offer:
Help with travel - to medical appointments, such as surgery, dental or hospital;
Home visits - help with shopping, collecting prescriptions, simple housekeeping, reading or writing letters;
Companionship - with a home visit (when permitted) or phone call;
Comforting - the bereaved/befriending;
Safety - home energy/fitting smoke alarms and wellbeing checks.
We need volunteers to help us support the elderly in Tring and Berkhamsted.
"We all have busy lives, but even if can only spare an hour occasionally, your help can make a real difference to our older neighbours and offers a chance to give back to your local community. It just needs enthusiasm and a can-do approach. Don't worry, relevant training will be given and expenses are covered."
