Share part of your Christmas with others

Christmas is a stressful time for most people but with the added chaos due to the severe weather we are experiencing, how many families are going to struggle over the festive period.

Carer watch received this message from one of our members…..

Support worker rang to say her car not working. One for tomorrow rang to say she cant get here either and looking doubtful whether the one for Thursday and friday will show. Front line is a good term for family carers cos when push comes to shove, its all on us. At this rate Christmas not happening as I cant get food shopping in and delivery service I have used in the past has been stopped.

Although this was from a family carer, how many disabled/elderly people are facing the same problems.

Have you been able to do your shopping?

Maybe you have a neighbour who is struggling. Can you offer them some help?

Do you buy too much food…..look around.

Perhaps you could deliver a Christmas meal to someone who lives close by and who lives alone.

Christmas is a time for sharing…..share a part of yourself.
