Lifeline service operating
Richmondshire’s emergency lifeline service which helps the elderly and vulnerable stay in their homes is still operating.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic mobile wardens are only visiting homes in cases of emergency. All users of the service are being contacted by telephone to check equipment, maintain contact and provide support and advice if needed.
A number of measures are also being taken within our sheltered housing schemes to minimise risks including weekly deep cleans, following social distancing rules, and for those residents self-isolating a telecall from the warden will be undertaken rather than a personal visit.
