Helping the Chelsea Pensioners cope with daily life and stay safe during the coronavirus crisis
It is still unclear how much we will need to spend to keep the Chelsea Pensioners safe during this unprecedented health crisis, but whatever it is, we remain fully committed to doing whatever is necessary. In addition, events that we have relied on to help meet our annual running costs have been cancelled, leading to a substantial loss of income.
The coming days, weeks and months will be crucial for safeguarding Pensioners’ health and wellbeing. With your support we will be able to keep the Pensioners safe, healthy and help them cope with life in isolation. Your help will provide: Support staff, equipment and extra services to give support to Pensioners who are isolated or shielded or spending most of their time in their berths. These include:
- Additional social and leisure activities to help Pensioners stay active and better cope with life in isolation
- Tablets and phones so Pensioners can stay in touch with family and friends while isolated
- Mental Health and Bereavement support for the staff and Pensioners
