NHS ADVISORY FOR NON COVID SUPPORT

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR SHETLAND CARERS

VAS Carers Support Service is still supporting unpaid carers in Shetland by offering info and advice and help to access short breaks. Although Market House is currently closed to the public, we are contactable on phone at 743980, by email at kirsten.harcus@shetland.org and also through our website www.shetlandcarers.org<http://www.shetlandcarers.org>  and facebook page https://www.facebook.com/ShetlandCarers/

An Emergency Plan is a document to record all the support a carer carries out for their cared for person so that this can continue if the carer was unable to carry out their caring role at short notice. We can support carers to create an Emergency Plan or carers can work through a toolkit themselves from our website https://www.shetlandcarers.org/info/documents/emergency-planning.I

If you have any queries please get in contact.

From Rearo Supplies

Rearo supplies are open for gas only with a skeleton staff as we are key workers. Delivery days remain the same, and delivery is our preferred method, with payment over the phone. Our drivers won't be going into houses for payment like they may have done in the past. If you want to collect your gas, you can pay from your car to save having to enter the building if you want. We are working a contactless switch machine system to reduce contact If you are coming in. If you have a gas emergency we will have an engineer bit it is STRICTLY emergency only. No non essential work will be done. We will not be opening on Saturdays. These are difficult times but we are a strong community and we will pull together through this. Stay safe everyone.

From Natalie Ho

 

Whilst the Great Wall Takeaway is still in operation until further notice we appreciate that we are currently facing some difficult times.

To help find some faith, courage, and happiness we would like to offer the people who are helping us to fight this virus a free takeaway!

We are offering one free takeaway a day to a member of staff from the NHS/Social Care/Emergancy Services/Tesco Staff - or anyone that you can think needs cheered up due to the effects of COVID-19!

Please start your nominations in the comments on the FACEBOOK PAGE and leave, we will private message you to arrange a meal and delivery.

Thanks for sharing, we are connected, one world, one people. Stay safe
