Your LifeLine this winter

As winter draws in, do you worry about what would happen if mum or dad had an accident at home? We can help put your mind at ease with CKH LifeLine.

LifeLine is here to support anyone to live independently at home, without the worry of what might happen in an emergency. At the push of a button, help can be there when it’s needed.

Our highly trained team are available around the clock to respond to alerts and provide reassurance. If you’re listed as an emergency contact, they’ll let you know straightaway if there’s been an accident and what action has been taken.

It’s a little button that can make a big difference to how you feel. So let us help you take care of your loved ones this Christmas.

If you’d like to learn more about how LifeLine can support you or a loved one, visit us at Customer Central on Bridge Street, give us a call on 01733 396439, or take a look at our website.

Care team scoops more award success

Our Care team are celebrating a great success in the Great British Care Awards. Our Kingfisher Court extra care scheme, located in Stanground, has won the Housing with Care category at the Eastern region awards.

The judges were really impressed with how the team at Kingfisher Court “deliver care with dignity and compassion, and truly put the person first every time.” The team at Kingfisher, and our sister scheme Lapwing Apartments in Orton Brimbles, both pride themselves on the fun social activities, the supportive community feeling and the high quality care on offer to all residents, as well as the comfortable and accessible homes, that give residents their own front door and total independence.

Moving into our extra care schemes offers a fantastic, supportive way of life for older people. But you don’t need to move to get the benefit of our great, person centred care service, because we can also support you in your own home.
