Care for the Carers

When you’re caring for someone full time, it can be all too easy to ignore your own needs and to forget that you matter too. The importance of looking after your own health and well-being is vital to help you cope. So, here are some tips on how to do this:

Make time for yourself

Make sure you have some regular ‘me’ time each day to do things which are just for you. Also, get out every week or so to meet a friend, have your hair done, pursue an interest or do something that you find enjoyable and that keeps you in contact with the outside world. Please remember, there are plenty of options to support you in doing this without compromising the needs of the person you’re caring for. For example, organisations such as mine regularly provide short term care and support to enable family members to take a much needed break.

Look after your health and wellbeing

If you are someone’s main carer, it is critical that you look after yourself. Caring can be both physically and emotionally draining and you need to be healthy and happy if you are to manage it. Try to eat a well-balanced diet and take regular exercise. This will give you more energy and will often be part of your own personal time to get out of the house for a short while. Make sure you get enough sleep. If your sleep is frequently disturbed by the person you care for, talk to your doctor, social worker or community psychiatric nurse about it. Don’t neglect the psychological impact on you of what you are doing. It can become incredibly stressful for someone living in this type of environment. See your GP on a regular basis to check up on your own health. Make sure they are aware of any stress or problems you are experiencing. Your home is where you feel the most comfortable and the happiest. It’s the place you know the best. Why would you move away from the place you love if you are faced with needing some extra care and support when you age? If you want to stay living comfortably at home, we can help you make that choice an informed one.

30 What Has Covid-19 Done for Our Community Spirit?

We might be forgiven for wanting to put 2020 behind us without the need to re-examine events! But far from wanting to forget it ever happened, there are certain aspects of the last 12 months that bear revisiting and prove that there are more positive things going on in the world than negative ones.

The UK’s response to Covid-19 has had an unexpected upside: it has demonstrated that we have an amazing capacity for generosity and community spirit at times of severe crisis. Feel-good stories about neighbours helping neighbours, clapping for the NHS and carers, and the heart-warming campaign of Captain Sir Tom Moore regularly graced the headlines, giving us a sense that all was not lost even as we battened down the hatches for a second time. The nationwide and regional lockdowns placed a huge emphasis on local communities and the need for people to help each other, particularly the elderly and vulnerable. Caring for others has always been part of human nature but the pressures of modern life meant it often got pushed down the priorities list. Being forced to stay at home means we’ve unilaterally developed a new habit of looking out for one another and its one we’re apparently keen to stick with. According to a recent survey 68% of UK adults want to continue helping others even after the current crisis has passed. It seems we’re getting used to being active members of our local communities. We’ve been discovering the joys of shopping locally, nodding at strangers even as we keep our distance on long walks, litter

picking in the local park, shopping for elderly neighbours and offering up surplus loo rolls. Even during the pared-down VE celebrations in May many people set up picnic tables in their front gardens and drives, waving to each other and chatting from behind garden gates and privet hedges as they drank tea or quaffed a cocktail or two. Who can forget the images of people singing on balconies in Italy? Or that over 750,000 people signed up to be an NHS volunteer? Or the hand drawings of rainbows in windows? This renewed sense of togetherness is a boost to our mental health, so its one that we should all work to nurture, not just for now but long into the future. Doing good gives us a rush, making us feel good in return, reducing our own stress and improving our wellbeing. As we head into the new year we should try to remember that despite all the panic and fear that this historic global pandemic has brought, despite the uncertainty and the disruption, this crisis has truly illuminated the best of humanity. We’ve witnessed a revolution of kindness and communities coming together just when we needed it most. Don’t let it die. Author: Helen Say

Reasons to buy Local

It builds local communities & strengthens local economies

When you support a local business, you are supporting your friends, family, and neighbours. The availability of local shops is especially important for the elderly, vulnerable, young people and those without access to private transport. Plus the more money that local councils make in rent and rates, the more they can spend on supporting local infrastructure and public services.

Local small businesses adds character to towns and villages

A small business or carpet shop adds character to the city or town when you walk or drive by. In a world that has become increasingly dominated by chain stores, a local business’s branding is unique and often quirky, adding something different to your High Street, offering an alternative experience, and bringing a much needed breath of fresh air into areas populated by generic stores and companies.

using local creates more job opportunities and encourages entrepreneurship

A local business that becomes a success will grow, and as they grow they’ll recruit more staff from the local population. Plus their success will encourage other local businesses to open up to take advantage of the footfall, encouraging other people to take the plunge and become entrepreneurs too!


4

You get a more personalised service

45

Local business owners are friendly and engaging, they get to know their customers at a personal level and can provide better advice about their products and services. Local traders value your business more since their survival depends on their good reputation and repeat business. They can often adapt their products to suit your personal requirements, or source something bespoke for you, which big chains won’t do.

5

It’s better for the environment

Shopping local means less mileage and petrol costs for you, which helps reduce CO2 emissions. Plus local shops often stock locally sourced goods which not only supports the local economy but also reduces transport times and costs of the goods, which impacts positively on their carbon footprint.

One unexpected and welcome outcome from the Coronovirus lockdown is the way in which many small businesses have been able to adapt so that they can keep trading. We’ve seen cafes become grocers, restaurants develop collection and take-away services almost overnight, shops develop online e-commerce stores, and salon owners becoming YouTube stars as they share their skills and expertise with ever widening and appreciative audiences. Even during times of crisis, the demand to shop can open up new opportunities in many industries. At Tilehurst Directory we’ve always believed that shopping and using local trades plays a vital role, and no matter what our world will look like in the future we should all carry on supporting local enterprises. We know its tempting to default to the big chains or to buy online. But shopping locally is usually just as cost-effective and convenient, plus you are supporting your local community, rather than putting money in nameless and faceless shareholders’ pockets.

WHEN YOU BUY FROM A SMALL BUSINESS AN ACTUAL PERSON DOES A LITTLE HAPPY DANCE!!
