Age UK Oxfordshire are providing advice & information for anyone worried about Corona Virus

Age UK Oxfordshire are providing advice & information for anyone worried about Corona Virus on their website here https://www.ageuk.org.uk/oxfordshire/about-us/news/coronavirus/    and have set up a free new telephone support service including a friendly,

regular weekly call to see how people are and offer advice if needed. Please note this is not an emergency medical service; please ring 111 for medical advice and 999 in a medical emergency. Please share with anyone who might need this information

From Monday 16th March we will be doing some things differently at Age UK Oxfordshire and Action for Carers to minimise the risk from coronavirus. We will be increasing the support we provide to older people and carers by telephone and limiting home visits to essential visits only. We will be pausing our events, activities and groups for the time being as a precautionary measure.

We are pleased to be offering a new, free, telephone support service. This will include a friendly, regular weekly call to see how people are, to chat and also problem-solve if people are facing practical problems.

 If you think you would benefit from this service, please phone 01865 411 288 which will connect straight to an answerphone where you can leave your name and contact number. A member of our team will then ring you back as soon as they are able during normal working hours. Please note this is not an emergency service – please ring 111 for medical advice or 999 in a medical emergency. There are simple, effective things we can all do to reduce our risk of catching coronavirus or transmitting the virus to other people. Please visit the Age UK website for more information: https://www.ageuk.org.uk/information-advice/health-wellbeing/conditions-illnesses/coronavirus/

In these challenging times, lots of people have been asking us how they can support older people who are staying at home.

Formal volunteering typically requires an application and training process that can take several weeks to complete.

In order to best support those older people who may be in need of some simple assistance immediately, we want to encourage you to take part in neighbourly volunteering.

Our partner Age UK has put together a simple training video and a postcard you can complete to offer help and to provide some key information to your older neighbours: https://www.ageuk.org.uk/get-involved/volunteer/neighbourly-volunteering/ “
