Our Care Services Update – COVID 19 (23 March 2020)
Our domiciliary care service in the community and within the Extra Care Housing Schemes has continued without any disruption. These are the only services that would normally operate on a Sunday. Our three wellbeing centres , as reported previously are open with a reduced service only available to the family of key workers with increased controls in place.
Stay Home, Stay Safe & Save Lives
Although yesterday was a Mother’s Day to remember spirits were lifted by a video we shared of local youngsters practising the Stay Home, Stay Safe, Save Lives message.
Students from Denbigh Primary, 2nd Howdon Scouts and our own key workers’ children shared messages for their loved ones. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tylcwbdyR68
We all need to follow Government and NHS advice regarding social isolation. Please help us protect our key workers who are doing an amazing job in support of our customers.
They are going above and beyond, and doing EveryDay proud.
EveryDay professional care from Age UK North Tyneside
EveryDay’s services are varied and range from care at home, respite for carers, companionship, support around the home and garden including pet walking and domestic cleaning, through to specialist healthcare for long-term conditions and end of life care.
Continuing to live at home is arguably one of the most important challenges people face as they grow older. For many remaining at home enables a sense of independence and freedom, self-worth and identity, comfort, and an ongoing active role in the community. This holds important implications for supporting older people to both sustain living at home and to adjust to changing circumstances.
Older people tend to spend up to 72% of their time inside their homes making the decision about where to live a crucial one. Being able to continue living at home assists the older person by providing a familiar environment within which to contend with the challenges and changes to lifestyle that occur due to the ageing process.
Home also often remains the one stable entity in the lives of the older person when everything else is changing. Living at home supports older people to retain some control over their daily lives and to maintain some independence and autonomy.
Research has found that personal belongings that hold memories and bring comfort, connect older people to the physical space of home. For some, a house itself can be a place of familial heritage and allows the individual to remain connected to the generations of family members who once lived within their walls.
Relationships and roles in the community are also an integral part of the meaning of home and can provide security and comfort. A sense of identity in the community can result from friendly neighbours and nearby friends. Being forced to leave one’s home can sever important community connections and remove the intergenerational aspect of community living.

- Accessing care and support at home
