Hertfordshire Independent Living Service [HILS]

Hertfordshire Independent Living Service (HILS), established by Herts County Council as a charitable social enterprise, provides a range of caring services to help people stay happy, healthy, and independent in their own home. Help to people’s lives, HILS give support and peace of mind to thousands of Hertfordshire residents, their families and friends.
HILS services include:
Meals on wheels, Nutrition & wellbeing service, Pop-in visits, Community alarms & telecare. Home from hospital packs, Dementia fun clubs, Emergency food packs, Advocacy, & Optician service.
Meals on wheels are available to everyone, 365 days a year. Every visit includes delivery of a hot meal and dessert, along with a caring welfare check, at the subsidised cost of £4.55 per day (or slightly more if you don’t meet the subsidy criteria). Breakfast/Tea packs are also available at an additional charge. You can order meals as a one-off, temporarily, or for as long as you would like them. A medication prompt can also be provided.
Community alarms and telecare support you to live safely and independently in your home. A community alarm is a unit connected wirelessly to a small, water resistant button worn on your wrist or around your neck. If you need help, it connects you to a Hertfordshire-based control room, 24 hours a day. Telecare equipment can support you at home by alerting someone if you need help. It can also help you to manage your medication, let your family know you’re okay, manage a sensory impairment, and prevent distraction burglaries, scams, and abuse. The Home from Hospital emergency food and grocery pack is a box of essentials given free of charge if you are leaving hospital.
HILS work in partnership to offer a free home eye testing and spectacle fitting service.

Diabetes UK {DIABETES Our contact Jean BORRILL 01707 888161}

We have been asked to raise awareness of the first meeting in Cheshunt of "Type-2-Together". This is a pilot project, organised jointly by Diabetes UK and the NHS at Addenbrookes Hospital, to set up Peer Support Groups for those living with Diabetes Type 2. Cheshunt has been chosen as one of the first of its kind in this area. It is hoped that by meeting in a Peer Support Group, those living with the condition will be able to share their experiences and discuss information and tips in a very relaxed and informal manner, learn more about diabetes management and well-being and enjoy the support and friendship of others in the same situation.
This first meeting was held at the Beaumont Centre, Rowlands Fields, Turners Hill, Cheshunt on Thursday, 29th October at 12 and thereafter every last Thursday in the month.
The Peer Support Group Leader is Joan Borrill
