Return to face-to-face services in the home

Since 23rd March, the Crossroads professional care support services both in the home and community have been affected by Covid-19 and the need to socially distance to protect carers, their family and our employees. 

Because of this, we adapted our services to support carers and their cared for loved ones. We also extended our service offer to include all vulnerable and at-risk people through telephone befriending and an essential shopping and prescription medication collection service. 

With effect from 1st June 2020 we are returning to face-to-face services in the home. We are taking time to research what support is needed right now and contacting carers we help to ask if they would like us to return to their home to help with caring support services. 

We want to assure you, our team are professional, trained in all aspects of care and in view of the Covid19 pandemic, are following strict guidelines implemented by the UK Government to adhere to infection control and caring within home settings legislation. Our team of Carer Support Workers have been equipped with the best personal protection equipment (PPE) to keep everyone safe. 

If you, or someone you know cares for someone round-the-clock, Crossroads can help with charitable care support services allowing for regular respite for carers. 

Please call 01372 869 970 or visit Crossroads Care Surrey for further information.

Get Help when you’re self-isolating or shielding because of age, illness or longterm medical condition 

Although the team will now be back into people’s homes providing face-to-face services, there are many who will be unable to benefit from this service because of the need to self-isolate or shield themselves for a 12-week period. If you need help with essential shopping or a prescription medication collection, please contact the team on 01372 869 970 today.

Telephone Befriending 

The telephone befriending contact service is incredibly valuable as experience tells us people do not think to ask or search out help. With the befriending scheme, people we’ve helped tell us they feel we’ve given them a safe space to share how they are feeling, giving Carer Support workers the opportunity to know how best we can support them. 

If you feel you, or a loved one would benefit from regular contact by telephone and would welcome the opportunity to speak to someone about the service, please contact us on 01372 869 970 today.
