Community Warden Scheme
Swavesey’s Community Warden has been operating in the village since October and has proved popular and welcome by the residents she visits and by the reassurance the service provides to relatives.
Some comments received are:
"Having someone contact my mother every morning, has really helped reassure me and mother is enjoying the friendship and help the warden provides"
"When I am away or on holiday, it is good to know that the warden is making daily contact or visits to mum"
"Our Community Warden is so helpful and it’s so nice to have that daily contactand chat with her"
The service is there is assist older people to continue to live independently in their own homes and the warden can help with many small tasks such as collecting prescriptions, watering plants, small items of shopping, lifts to local shops or doctors, or just a listening ear, a chat and a cup of tea.
