Recently, the cost of living crisis has emerged as a critical issue for individuals and families nationwide. At Caremark Greenwich, we recognise the profound impact this crisis can have on both our young adult and older adult customers within our community.

This article seeks to illuminate the challenges confronting our community and offers valuable resources to help navigate these challenging times.

Comprehending the Challenges

The increasing costs of housing, utilities, and everyday necessities can impose a significant burden on individuals, impacting their overall well-being. Both young adults and older individuals may struggle to meet their basic needs amid these economic challenges.

As a Greenwich home care provider committed to the well-being of our community, we find it essential to emphasise the available resources that can support those experiencing financial hardship.

Food banks:

There are several local food banks in Greenwich that offer essential food items to community members in need. These organisations play a crucial role in ensuring that individuals and families have access to nutritious meals despite financial challenges.
