CHRISTMAS ARANGEMENTS:

                                   

 We are closed Tuesday the 22nd December till Tuesday the 5th of January for Xmas Holidays. Harleys Bistro will continue to provide lunches to all those who need them but families will have to collect them. We are starting to get there with our new kitchen and Dining room and hope to have completed in January 2021. Please, God, we will start to reopen the centre properly as soon as possible, all depending on Health and safety due to Covid 19 regulations. We miss you all very much and are always available by phone to help out in any way we can. I wish you all a very Happy Christmas and New Year.

The centre will continue to open 3 days a week but unfortunately, we cannot welcome our members on a daily basis yet due to COVID 19. But it is very important for you all to know we are always here to help and support you in any way we can. I can be contacted on my phone every day at 087-4611309. Do not hesitate to call for any help and support you might need, even for a chat if you are feeling lonely or just need someone to talk to. We can deliver a nice fresh hot dinner, get some shopping for you or collect a prescription in the chemist. We can now deliver to outside the village of Portlaw so no matter where you live in Co. Waterford call us for help and support if needed.

All Computer Classes with Mary Curtis on Wednesday starting at 9.15. All courses will continue the use of the internet, emailing and smartphone.

We can arrange an Emergency Response System (Panic Button) installed into their home, for someone living alone or with any health concerns. Please call the Dr Martin Day Centre Portlaw, also there is an excellent offer at the moment. We can apply through Pobal for equipment, first-year monitoring fee is free and 66 euros yearly after that. Anyone is welcome to help in our centre and I can also help with disability parking permits for anyone eligible.

                                         Dinner for only 7.50 Euro can be delivered.                                           Ring in order before 10.30 each morning on 051-387111 /0874611309.

(Above arrived in an e-mail while in hospital (UHW) for some days, preceded by another e-mail which said the Meals-on-Wheels service was still in operation, also that two rooms had been knocked into one, making quite a large dining room for when the centre eventually re-opens after Covid 19 restrictions are lifted)
