Lockdown restrictions may still be in place, but springtime is undoubtedly on its way. All of us here at Guardian Angel Carers home care agency are here for you and your loved ones as we all look forward to seeing each other out and about once again. Throughout the rest of lockdown and beyond, our CareAngels can be by your side, offering friendly conversation over a cup of tea or a home-cooked meal, tending to household tasks, and accompanying you on local walks to lift your mood and to give you an opportunity to enjoy some exercise.

Though we are proud of everything we do to deliver the best domiciliary care services to you and your loved ones, we are especially pleased to offer compassionate care in the form of companionship services. Here are some ways our CareAngels can meet both your social and your practical needs.

Need some fresh air?

All of our CareAngels are happy to accompany you and your loved ones on a walk outdoors in the beautiful countryside. The government has specified that we are all permitted to enjoy an hour of exercise per day, and here is a short list of some safe activities you can do for exercise with a CareAngel by your side.

If you have any questions or concerns about taking fresh air and enjoying some exercise during the lockdown, give us a call and we will be happy to talk you through a plan that works best for you. A walk in the great outdoors has proven to be good for both body and soul, so let’s go outside, together.

  • The flat paved walk to Cobnor Point, Chidham gives you the opportunity to admire the lovely Chichester Harbour, and at this time of year, many coastal birds will be visible. In the warmer months, you will enjoy views of summer sailors in the harbour. You will find Blue Badge parking in the car park located directly to the left of the white gateposts of Cobnor House.
  • You can also walk from Emsworth to Warblington, parking at the car park on South Street. The terrain is hard, so wheelchair users and mobility scooters will find the path to be easy going. If you follow South Street to the Promenade, you will find yourself near the yacht club and the sea wall. If you plan to go much farther than this point, check the tides before you go.

Can we pick up anything for you?

As a part of Guardian Angel Carers companionship services, our CareAngels are all happy to help you with errands and the collection of any essentials you may need. While attending to your click and collect order from local stores and making purchases at local businesses that have remained open, our CareAngels always take care to prioritise the health and safety of everyone involved.

If you need anything delivered, our CareAngels can help arrange any orders with your local supermarkets like the Tesco on Solent Road and the Asda on Larchwood Avenue. As well, Pets Corner in the Dobbies Garden Centre are offering curbside pickup so our beloved pets are also looked after.

Looking for something a little out of the ordinary? Try either of these wonderful local businesses.

  • The Stansted Park Farm Shop is open for business. Whether you are looking for fresh and local fruit and vegetables, meat, fish, bakery, or delicious preserves and other groceries, the Stansted Park Farm Shop is sure to please. Though the shop currently offers delivery to Rowlands Castle, Havant, Bosham & Chichester, Stoughton, and Compton on Thursdays and Fridays, the shop asks that anyone who can pre-order and collect to please do so. Safety precautions are in effect, as employees will bring the food order to your car and put it in your boot for you while you wait in the car park.
  • Looking for something both familiar and different for supper? FNK Vegan Pies can be delivered to your home within three days of your order. Classically trained chef Fraser Neal started his business in Rowlands Castle, but now, his delicious vegan creations are based in Havant. He combines vibrant international flavours in his recipes whilst also supporting two charities. Contact him through his website for more information.

If you have any questions for us, please contact Guardian Angel Carers home care agency, and we will be happy to talk with you about any of your concerns. In the meantime, we hope you and your loved ones are staying warm and comfortable and looking forward to springtime!
