Wellbeing advice and support
We are all doing our bit to #StayHome to #StaySafe this helps protect us and others physically, but we also need to keep our minds healthy too.
Keeping in touch
Talking about your feelings is always a good step to start to look after your mental wellbeing. For some, meeting up with family or friends for a cuppa and a chat helps get through difficult times. Although this is impossible in our current situation, there are other ways you can still connect with others. For example, video chatting using facetime and WhatsApp, gets more people in the conversation.
Last week we launched our telephone wellbeing service for all tenants over the age of 70 and those with vulnerabilities as identified by the Government as being at most risk, to check they’re OK and assist where we can.
It’s been a really successful service, so we’ll be looking to roll this out wider and speak to more tenants. However, if you feel you would benefit from this now please get in touch on 0800 085 7843.
