CORONAVIRUS ADVICE

4th November 2020

The latest lockdown is about to start and is currently planned to last for 1 month only.

How does this affect KingsCare?

We’re still trying to work this out but for now:

+ The Hub shop will be closed but the pavement shop will operate on fine days again and the volunteers will take orders over the phone

+ We will do all we can to take patients  to medical appointments but this has to rely on the availability of volunteers and staff to do this

+ We will continue to make welfare calls to those socially isolated

+ We will not be able to make face-to-face visits to people

+ We will not be able to run our social groups

+ We may be able to run some support groups but are currently trying to establish if this is possible and/or practical

+ We can only complete benefits claims for clients over the telephone

+ We will continue to deliver prescriptions 

+ We will do our best to shop for those who cannot shop for themselves but this, again, depends on the availability of volunteers and staff to do so

For up to date information regarding shielding, please see the link below:

We are here to do what we can to help where we can but, as things stand at the moment, we are not sure what will be asked of us and what requests we can meet. Please do ask and we will do our best to meet your request or recommend someone else who can.

Thank you

KINGSCARE AIM

Our Aim is, with voluntary support, to improve the quality of life of those in need with our community.

That community now stretches throughout Kingsteignton to Newton Abbot and the surrounding villages.

In 2017 we secured a grant for a year from the Big Lottery’s Awards for All Programme to employ a coordinator to develop more patient support services in Kingskerswell and the surrounding villages alongside Sharing Care. By November Kerswella Care was born.

We are now also working with representatives from Buckland who are establishing a patient support group there – BuSS
