Crossroads Care Frontline Workers
We are now looking forward to a brighter future but during the pandemic a team of people carried on working through the arduous days of Covid. These were Ribble Valley Crossroads Care staff, who visited families throughout the community.
Alongside their regular visits, staff undertook extra visits caring for Covid positive clients. Supporting the local Health Service to keep people out of hospital and in their own homes.
Specialised care continued throughout lock down times, along with collecting medication and anything else required for their wellbeing, giving comfort to families who were unable to visit those in need knowing they were in safe hands. Carers also received support and relief in coping with the long and often lonely days and nights.
Dementia Respite Community Group (Time for You)
We are looking forward to (hopefully) restarting our community Group Time for You on the 24th June 2021.
The group offers activities, support, advice and a two course hot lunch for those living with Dementia.
The group provides the ‘informal carer’ to take time for themselves, knowing their loved one is being cared for safely with trained staff and volunteers.
Please click the leaflet opposite for details.
Look out for us on Clitheroe Market during CARERS WEEK – Tuesday 8th and Saturday 12th June 2021, when we will have lots of information on help available for anyone caring for a family member, friend, or neighbour.
This week is set aside each year to support the huge number of dedicated carers who, in some cases, spend every minute of every day caring for a loved one who now must rely on them totally.
