MESSAGE IN RESPONSE TO LATEST LOCKDOWN
In response to the latest government guidance, our Board of Trustees has taken the decision to close our Men in Sheds project and Dementia Carers group until further notice due to the increased risks of groups meeting together at this time. Our Men in Sheds shop in Paris Street is also closed.
All our community support services will, however, continue to provide older people in the city with the support and help they need during this extremely difficult time. These include our Enabling, Befriending and one to one Carer Support services, as well as our Wellbeing Exeter and Information and Advice services. Many of our interactions will revert from face to face to telephone contact in order to reduce risk. Our dedicated team of Enabling staff, instead of taking people shopping, will now shop for people to avoid the risk of crowded supermarkets and provide one to one company and support in settings that are safe to promote people’s mental wellbeing. Our wonderful band of Volunteer Visitors, who make such a difference to the lives of so many older people who live alone, will now, in the main, keep in touch by phone rather than visits. All our staff and volunteers are issued with the necessary PPE to keep everyone safe and all activities are risk assessed and operate within appropriate guidelines.
We will keep the situation under review, but it is unlikely to change until the lockdown is eased.
Our thanks go to our staff and volunteers who are doing such a great job as we work towards a time when the restrictions can be lifted as the vaccine programme is rolled out.
