Unfortunately we have to suspend our Health & Well Being Day Care Service for older people due o the COVID 19 virus. Our service included supporting people with dementia. As we get paid by numbers we could lose out on much needed income. We have offererd Sandwell Council and alternative support package to include shopping support, prescription collection, telephone contact and if required, cooking hot meals on site for distributiion as a way of supporting our clients in the community whilst respecting safe practices; if we do not get their support we will be in great difficulty. Our ACRC Home Care service will continue providing personal care in the homes of individuals in need. Life the NHS staff, charities also provide vital services but we are often overlooked as essential workers. Please support your local charity so we can keep making a positive difference. Click onto our DONATE button on our website if you are able to make a donation. THANK YOU.
