Purpose of the Charity:
The purpose of which is to provide free assistance to all nationalities, of any age, who find themselves in difficulty following illness, hospitalisation, injury or respite assistance to carers of those with long term illness. This is not a full time, or long term care service but one offering a little help to people in a time of need to all ages and nationalities.
This service is much needed, as expatriates from various countries do not always have the support of family members and have difficulty accessing this type of service due to language barriers nor can they afford nursing agencies.
We pride ourselves with the way we receive, respond and release to those in need of a little FREE help at home. When we receive enquiries, we respond within 24 hours and release the case when we have completed our care, usually within 4 / 6 weeks. Respite is offered for those who care for long term illness / conditions by caring volunteers, they offer friendship and support to those that need a break themselves. We need volunteers to help provide the much needed support for people with these debilitating conditions, MND, MS, CA, Alzheimers, Parkinsons, Dementia, Stroke and Huntingdons Disease, care is required longer and their Carers need respite. If you have a few hours a week and can help, wherever you live, contact 604 151 364 or email [email protected]
We provide qualified NVQ carers, most of them with basic nursing experience, backed up by volunteers, funded by donations and sponsorship.
This service could be seen as similar to the "District Nurse / Home Help" system in United Kingdom with the additional backup of non-medically qualified carers as required.
