At this time we are all being asked to make radical changes to our lives – to stay at home, adjust to schools and many other places closing, to socially distance from our family and friends, and follow guidance on self-isolation – but throughout this the incredible care workers at Caring Together are still at work providing care to the elderly, people with a disability, people with dementia and with mental health problems in your local community.
Caring Together is a local charity who provide care workers to go into people’s homes to help carers. We are working throughout Cambridgeshire, Peterborough and Norfolk.
The social care system, particularly the vital care that is provided to vulnerable people in their own homes is all the more important at this time.
We urgently need your help. Coronavirus has had a huge effect on our services. We have had to stop all our clubs and groups for the foreseeable future and cancel all our fundraising events which we rely upon to help fund our home care services.
However, our home care workers are under increased pressure. We want to ensure that carers and the people they look after don’t become isolated and are given the support they need in the home. We want to ensure that what is a challenging time for all of us doesn’t become a greater crisis for people who already face huge demands.
Hear how Lizzy, one of our care workers, is supporting carers to have a break during the Coronavirus pandemic.
This is why we need your urgent help and support – please donate to our Caring for carers appeal. Your donation will help us fund the vital services our care workers provide, all day, every day, and to help and support those caring for loved ones at this time.
