Good Day Calls

Would you or an elderly relative be interested in receiving a regular 'Good Day' call?

Age UK are offering a daily call providing reassurance, security and support. by a trained member of their team to check on the welfare of you or an older relative or friend. We know that if you live alone it can be difficult not to have someone to talk to, especially if you do not have regular contact with family members. This can be an extremely anxious time for people and we know you may worry that no one will notice if you become ill or are without the practical assistance and emotional support you need.

In addition to providing reassurance and practical support they will also chat about interests and how you are keeping busy at home.

Their service also brings reassurance to family members who may live at a distance and be unable to visit and keep in close contact owing to their own commitments.

Their daily call helps tackle these issues by making sure the person is up and well and provides an opportunity for a friendly chat.

Whilst it is extremely important to follow Government advice to stay at home during this period, it can be confusing to know what to do when your child is unwell or injured. Remember that NHS 111, GPs and hospitals are still providing the same safe care that they have always done. Here is some advice to help:
