Growing old can bring challenges, both for the person who’s ageing and for their family. It can be frustrating for our loved ones because they can’t do everything they used to and feel like they’re losing their independence. At the same time, it might be worrying for their family as they might not be able to be there whenever their loved ones need them.

During the COVID 19 pandemic it has highlighted to everyone in society how loneliness for many, especially those of the older generation is a widespread issue. Our CAREGivers play a big part in helping to alleviate some of the loneliness experienced with their minimum hour visits to our clients. They are able to spend that little extra time having an all important chat as well as the many other tasks they carry out. Jo Morrison from the office has been delighted to have worked with Ali Perrott from the organisation ‘United in Kind’ for the Basildon District who have run a ‘Send a Smile’ campaign. The local community have sent cards, pictures and poems to be passed on to help brighten someone’s day. Ali kindly brought some along to our office last week so we could pass on to yourselves. So along with this newsletter please find attached one of those responses and we shall send others with later newsletters. If any of our clients or families want to do a little letter or a reply note, a picture or even try their hand at a poem themselves we would love to see it and it can be sent in with your CAREGiver. To find out more about United in Kind please visit their website www.unitedinkind.org.uk
