May Update

Here at KPAIS our SHOP for You service is continuing to deliver shopping support to our existing clients and any new clients who need a regular shopping service.  As you know this is a charged service but thanks to funding from LCR Cares, we are able to make sure we are only charging for one hour even when the shopping is taking longer due to queues. We can put in place a reliable weekly shopping call with one of our DBS checked supporters. Call 0151 449 3706 to make a referral or pass on our details to older people  and their families.

We have postponed all support packages which were providing cleaning or other support services in light of social distancing rules, and have replaced those visits with a welfare phone call.  We are making sure that those people still have contact and connection and to maintain the relationship already growing. The calls have been a great success. So although the dust may be building up, what is important is that we have had some lighthearted chat and in many cases a good laugh to continue to raise spirits and look after people’s wellbeing whilst reducing social isolation for our most vulnerable clients. 

Our TASK line remains open for calls, if people have any maintenance jobs that need doing, all of our traders are practicing safe working, using gloves and masks and social distancing so if the boiler breaks down you can still access a reputable trader through TASK on 0151 546 6680 and gardeners don’t even have to come into the home!

The Good Life Project is taking referrals for any kind of advice and support that people may need. Call 0151 949 5441 to make a referral. We recognise that Covid-19 has taken over everyone’s thoughts but sometimes there are still other problems behind that and the Good Life also has the Someone to Talk To service on 07934 171 195 so people don’t need to feel alone.   If you have any questions or would like to talk through any potential referrals please don’t hesitate to contact us.
