Hello my name is Paula Rowley and I would like to introduce myself as the new Community Warden for Papworth, Hardwick, Caldecote, Comberton, Toft, Bourn and Wimpole. Age UK Cambridgeshire and Peterborough have been delivering these schemes for 27 years and with the funding support from South Cambridgeshire District Council we are pleased to be in a position to expand the scheme to those living within the above mentioned villages.
I have worked in the health and social care sector in the local area for 22 years and have extensive experience and knowledge of supporting older people in the community.
The Community warden service assists adults over 60 to continue to live independently and safely at home by providing daily contact (Monday to Friday) and support by a personal visit (COVID19 compliant) or a telephone call to ensure a sense of security and wellbeing. We can help you on a long or short term basis depending on your needs and wishes. An example of some of the things I can do to help you are;
- Doing small amounts of shopping
- Collecting prescriptions
- Reading post and making phone calls on your behalf
- Spend time with you to have a chat
- Listen to any concerns and help you find a solution
You will receive a 2 week FREE trial and after that we ask for a small charge of £9 per week for a single person and £11 per week for a couple. Below are some quotes from people that use our service.
“During Isolation the telephone call and chat is a lifeline in such worrying times.”
“That phone call every day to check on me gives me such a great deal of security. You can’t believe what a phone call can mean at my age”
If you are interested and would like to know more, I would love to hear from you. Please call me on 07812495997
