ONE OF Help At Home’s (HAH) key activities is the short term loan of mobility aids, including wheel chairs, walkers and commodes, to residents and their guests as well as Visitors and Tourists within our area.
We make no charge for this or any other of our services. We rely solely on the generosity of our sponsors and supporters and our own fund raising efforts. Thanks to this generosity, in October we were able to spend another €5000 increasing our stock of available mobility aids.
Our other activities include helping those in temporary need, perhaps following an accident, bereavement or illness. Our carers can deliver help in the home, perhaps personal or more general. We do not offer any medical advice as we are not qualified, but we can offer contact advice, and in some extreme cases we will fund the initial contact. Our volunteers can provide help with transport, perhaps hospital visiting or shopping.
As we make no charge for any of the help we provide we organise regular and occasional fund raising activities including a weekly second hand book and DVD sale every Monday morning at the La Zona Bar in Los Alcazares, and a monthly Table Top Sale of second hand clothing and bric-a-brac at the same venue on the last Friday morning of each month.
We also sponsor Chatters, an informal open to all monthly meeting where we always have a guest speaker as well as a prize quiz and other activities together with complimentary refreshments. Why not come along, meet old friends and perhaps make new ones?
HAH always welcome new carers and volunteers. Even if you only have an occasional couple of hours to spare why not come along to our monthly meeting at the Las Claras Centre in Los Narejos and find out more about us and what we do? These meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month starting at 11am, the next one being on November 7. You will be made very welcome.
