SOUTH LIVERPOOL LINKING LIVES

SLLL have closed their weekly over 60’s group at Mossley Hill Church, but are continuing to offer friendship and support to anyone over 65 who is isolated through their befriending service.

This will now be operating as a telephone befriending service (rather than face to face). People can get in touch to make referrals on their own or someone else's behalf at  or on 07858570301.

CORONAVIRUS HOTLINES

Liverpool City Council have set up two Holtlines in response to the CoronaVirus Crisis (manned 8am to 6pm)

The volunteer hotline is 0151 233 3068. 

Volunteers are needed to help deliver medication to those in self-isolation, or check in with neighbours, and to help the foodbanks across the city

The support hotline is 0151 233 3066. 

This has been established for anyone to call who feels they need support with a range of basic tasks because they don’t have a support network – friends and family – in place. 

 People can also sign up online via Liverpool City Council’s website: www.liverpool.gov.uk/coronavirus

Uptodate infromation will also be available via new socialmedia feeds  at www.facebook.com/covidliverpool and www.twitter.com/covidliverpool 

 

The following resources may be useful for those living with dementia and their carers. Some of the advice is applicable to all carers (whoever they are caring for)
