During this time of Covid-19 regulations we have had to adapt and modify the care and services we offer. This does not mean we have decreased our work and the people we are impacting, but rather that we have found different ways to connect with those we regularly help, and new ways to help new people.
If any of the programmes interest you, we ask that you would phone our office to make an appointment with Victor or Duane, so that we can ensure social distancing measures are maintained whilst people make use of our programmes.
Office hours: Monday-Thursday 9-5pm
Meals on Wheels
Our day centre provides a two course hot meal for over 55's twice a week, but whilst many in this vulnerable catagory are sheltering, we are continuing to make sure they continue to receive a hot, home-cooked meal twice a week. Our cook prepares the main meal and desert on site and then our volunteers deliver the meals to our clients, maintaining contact with some elderly people who otherwise may not see anyone, or have anything other than beans on toast all week.
We help combat loneliness and we enable independence through dementia care, games, exercise and entertainment. We have put certain measures in place such as hand sanitisation, social distancing and more regular cleaning of the spaces used to enable us to carry on our work.
One increasing result of the Covid-19 lockdown is the increased anxiety and isolation. Our social prescribing has continued during this time helping people sort out their taxes, collecting and delivering medication and shopping, phoning and visiting vulnerable adults and ,providing space for people suffering from mental health repurcussions as a result of the lockdown.
