Living on your own or struggling to cope?

Age UK Cheshire are about to go live with their offer of support, which will be across Cheshire, to help with the coronavirus outbreak. Briefly, the support they will be offering is as follows:

  • Practical help in the community for all older people who are self isolating — collecting prescriptions, food shopping, urgent errands and anything else that they can do practically.
  • Telephone befriending — open to all older Cheshire residents, regular phone calls from our team to keep peoples spirits up and to form friendships over the phone and to reduce the risk of loneliness and social isolation.
  • Regular welfare checks — weekly telephone calls to all of our clients to ensure that they are safe and well and escalate if not

One number to ring if you need their help: 01606 881 660

We want to make sure that adults at risk are safe when they are self-isolating. Here are some things to think about if you are offered, or need, support during this time.

You can contact Cheshire East Council Adult Social Care on 0300 123 5010 if you need support or you feel unsafe. In an emergency, call 999.

Try to use existing and trusted community groups. If not, could a family member, friend or neighbour who you know and trust help?

If you are worried about a child, call 0300 123 5012
