Hear the voices of residents and their family/friends on the impact of coronavirus via Your Covid Stories
This hub brings together useful information about coping with coronavirus for older people and their relatives and friends.
As a result of coronavirus, calls to the R&RA Helpline have increased but our income has dropped. Please consider donating to us at this challenging time.
We take the time to listen
Our helpline advisers are experts in the care field and happy to cope with referrals from other advice or befriending lines when more in-depth knowledge is needed.
Coronavirus update: our helpline is busier than normal so it may take us a little longer to answer the phone. If you can’t get through, please leave a message and we will call you back. Thank you for your patience at this challenging time.
