Keep in Touch (KIT) Service

Our KIT service has been extended with additional staff now making calls to carers (including myself), along with a fantastic team of volunteers. I personally have found carers very grateful to receive a call just to check that they are coping both practically and emotionally, and answering any questions they may have about the government guidelines. We are giving ideas about exercising at home from our website along with details of our “things to do” during isolation ideas.  We are helping carers to get food packages and shopping arranged along with medication collections should it be required. Some carers are concerned about who will care for their loved one should they themselves become ill. We are helping people thing through their options and plan what they can do should the situation arise.
