Can you help reduce festive care visits

Reduced care packages over festive period
 
As the largest provider of home care in Scotland, Cordia support over 6,200 Glaswegians each week.
 
At this time of year, due to service demands for home care, the provision of care services can become a real challenge.     
 
Our workforce of 3,000 home carers work in a demanding but rewarding environment to meet the needs of service users. Dedicated teams of home carers are largely on foot braving difficult weather conditions to ensure care is delivered to the people of Glasgow.
 
Like you and me, home carers have friends and families they want to spent time with over the festive holidays. They are entitled to their leave and it is important that carers have that time off considering the pressures of their job.
 
Over the next few weeks, in particular the 25 and 26 December and 1 and 2 January 2018 we will reduce some care packages. We understand nobody likes to see reduced services and this is something which we would prefer not to be doing but it is necessary for a short period of time.
 
If you have a friend or family member who receives care and there is anything you could do over the festive period to reduce their care package, we would very much appreciate it.
 
Should you be able to help, simply call us on 0141 353 9292 giving details of visits that can be reduced for the days 25, 26 December 2017 and 1, 2 January 2018.
