Care companies adapting to help isolated in Bucks

Carers in Aylesbury are adapting to make sure the vulnerable are taken care of at the moment.

One company - Caremark - have told us they have a team of volunteers now getting food and essentials to those who shouldn't be going out at all.

Like many other businesses across the area, they have had to change to keep up with the situation we're in.

Caremark say they recognise that during the coronavirus period many vulnerable people are having difficulty getting deliveries of essential food and supplies to their homes.

They have a team of volunteers who will do essential shopping and deliver it to peoples' homes. 

If those in need need need the shopping unloaded inside the home Caremark can arrange for a qualified member of staff to bring it in and put it away subject to appropriate assessments.  

This service is being provided free of charge to new clients in order to protect and safeguard people who are unable to get out of their own homes and have no family member to help while it is difficult or unwise to leave their homes themselves.

Caremark supervisors are also making sure that they keep in touch with clients by telephone who are self isolating or not able to get out as much as they usually do, to let them know they are not alone.  

They have put in place special arrangements to keep clients as safe as possible while continuing this vital home care service, keeping people out of hospital so that hospitals are free for more critical patients.

Janis Anderson, Managing Director says:

"We believe that everyone in society must find a way to offer exceptional help in exceptional times.  We will do all we can to keep our clients and our key workers safe and secure in these difficult times."
