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
