MAYSI provides information and support to help people remain independent. This could be anything from helping access benefits, to equipment and care and social opportunities to keep you well.
If you are finding it hard to cope with everyday tasks, feeling lonely, need company, just out of hospital, caring for a friend or relative, not able to get out and do the things you want, wondering what may be available, then give us a call. We will listen to you, help to identify needs, offer choices, put you in touch with relevant services and support, help with Attendance Allowance, keep in touch.
MAYSI also provides the GP Care and Community Coordinator role for
Church Stretton Medical Practice.
CoCo offers one to one befriending from a carefully matched volunteer. It is part of the Countywide Compassionate Communities network, led by Severn Hospice volunteers who are trained and DBS checked.
The MAYSI project was launched in December 2001 and covers Church Stretton, Craven Arms and Dorrington.
In 2010, working in partnership with the Severn Hospice & Church Stretton Medical Practice, CoCo was developed as part of the Strategic Health Authorities Compassionate Communities Pilot Scheme. The recruitment and training of volunteers to provide on-going support for people in their own homes was a natural development of MAYSI. It gives time to enable those with most needs to do the things they want to do, improving their quality of life. We continue to work with the Severn Hospice on this Project.
We are the GP Care 4 Community Co-ordinators for Church Stretton Medical Practice.
If you have answered yes to any of the above we may be able to help you.
