Autumn Newsletter

Autumn Newsletter
October 3, 2018 Sarah Green

This is my first newsletter specifically for those who may need our help on the Island. It is six months since we opened our office in Llanfaelog Village Hall. Slowly, but I hope surely, we are now looking after some clients on the island.  Some require live in care, others daily help and some just companionship and a bit of housekeeping services.  We can provide all these services in your home.

Our team of daily carers is now building up and they are located all over the island.  We have had some teething problems but care routines are now getting nicely established and I feel we are already making a difference to some people’s lives.  We have had live in carers on the island for some time now, so if you need 24 hour care we can help.

Anglesey Show

We were delighted to be able to have a stand during the Anglesey Show this year.  My first time visiting!  What a show, and thankfully not bad weather, especially on the first day. We met so many interesting people and have made some good contacts.  Although this was mainly a networking exercise to get ourselves known, we met some amazing people,  like the Vicar of a parish in Bangor who is about to move to Valley, to a family whose mother and her best friend who were in the Chorale at The Welsh National Opera when I was a Stage Manager. That was over 40 years ago.  What a small world it really is!

Having recently given a presentation to ‘The Good Turn Scheme’ near Benllech, I would now offer other organisations, charities and volunteer groups the opportunity to learn about our bespoke care services.

‘Charity of the Month’

As part of the parent company, Bunbury Care Agency’s 50thAnniversary, we launched a ‘Charity of the Month’ campaign at the beginning of this year. I would now like to extend this to similar charities and organisations on the island, who are involved is supporting the elderly in their own homes.

This is a Facebook scheme, which means for every ‘Like or Share’ on Facebook, we will donate £1.00. We will start with the ‘Good Turn Scheme’. and take it from there.  In March the North West branch of the Alzheimer’s Society received a cheque for £100, so you could be next! 

Recruitment

Recent reports yet again have highlighted that the number of over 85 year olds needing round the clock care, is set to treble by 2035. Even worse, the number ofpeople over 65 needing 24 hour care is set to rise by a third. This reportwarns the care system is now definitely at breaking point.

This rapidly expanding group will have more complex care needs that are unlikely to be met adequately by the social care system. For example, long term conditions such as arthritis and the rise in obesity, let alone the many otherdiseases like cancer and Parkinson’s.

All this is very worrying information, so it is essential to recruit more experienced and caring people to look after our elderly generation.  We cannot help everybody, but we can make a difference to some people.

If you feel you can make that difference please do not hesitate to contact us on:

Campaigning to help people remain living in their own homes

We are a home care agency based in Llanfaelog, Anglesey helping families predominantly on the island of Anglesey and North Wales, although we are nationwide.

Anglesey Home Care is part of the Bunbury Care Agency who is a member of the UKHCA (United Kingdom Home Care Association) and an associate member of SOLLA (Society of Later Life Advisers). SOLLA is the only association in the UK that can provide accredited financial consultants who can advise and assist people with the funding of elderly care.
