Mobile Warden Scheme

The Morden Scheme helps the elderly and vulnerable people living in the Mordens, Litlington and Bassingbourn to be as self-sufficient as possible and continue to live happy and independent lives.

A Warden telephones each member every weekday morning to confirm that they are safe and well. If they can’t get a reply, then there is an escalation process using nominated friends or relatives.

Each member is visited by a Warden at an agreed time every week. In addition to a friendly chat, the Warden will ensure that there are no new health or safety issues and will follow up on outstanding matters.

The Warden will also liaise with health or welfare organisations as required, and provide additional help, for example collecting a prescription, emergency shopping or completing a form.

For more details on how to apply either for yourself, a friend, neighbour or relative visit or call 07841 025107
