Grantstown Community Village is still doing what we do best, caring for our cocooned residents in our sheltered houses and the local community. Our Nurse and carer are starting an ‘exercise for fun’ session with the cocooned residents with them standing in their doorways on Thursdays and a Zoom chat/craft/communications meeting with our residents that use the internet on Wednesday’s to help keep our residents safe and active physically & mentally.
Grantstown is continuing to Provide fresh nutritional 3 course meals on wheels, laundry, collecting shopping, pensions & prescriptions for any people cocooning or in need of assistance within our Community.
Although we cannot bring our missed clients into the Day Care Centre at this time, Lesley and her diligent team of volunteers are at the end of the phone each day checking on all clients/guests in need of support, comfort and a warm friendly chat.
As this crisis unfolds Grantstown is as it has always been, here for all people who need assistance. We have signed up for the Community Support Helpline through County Wexford PPN and of you are feeling isolated at this time, please feel to contact us on 051561016 and remember you are not alone and we would love you to pick up the phone and give us a ring and we will offer assistance to you in any way we can.
