The coronavirus pandemic has brought many challenges to the care sector. Our Care Support Workers are playing an essential role in the fight against COVID-19, and we have therefore introduced ways of working that will allow our Care Support Workers to continue doing their jobs safely. These ways of working follow the guidelines set out by the government, Hertfordshire Care Providers Association and Hertfordshire County Council. As such, we will ensure that our Care Support Workers:
• know what personal protective equipment (PPE) they should be wearing
• have access to the PPE that protects them and the people they provide care for
Carers in Hertfordshire and Crossroads Care Hertfordshire South have joined forces so they can strengthen the services and support they provide unpaid family carers and the people they look after, and offer a seamless service. You may have been redirected to this page from an internet search or the previous website for the Service.
Our Crossroads Care Service aims to provide high quality, flexible services which respond to the individual needs of carers and the people they care for, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
We offer a range of services including Carers’ Breaks and Domiciliary Care. In addition, we have the Borehamwood Seniors Club, an activities and lunch club for people over 60. You can find out more about each of these services below and in the linked pages.
There are also support groups that meet regularly in the community in places including Borehamwood, Bushey and Watford. You can find out more about these on our Carers Support Hubs page.
For carers living in Broxbourne, Dacorum, East Herts, North Herts, St Albans, Stevenage and Welwyn/Hatfield please contact our Carer Support Advisors on 01992 58 69 69 or email and they will be able to direct you to a suitable service.
