ARLA Propertymark has put out a call for agents to provide support to vulnerable tenants who may be self-isolating during the Coronavirus crisis.
Propertymark has joined forces with the Alzheimer’s Society to highlight issues those with dementia or vulnerable are facing, quite aside from the pandemic.
“Even before Coronavirus, those living alone or with cognitive difficulties such as dementia may not know how or be able to get the essentials they need, such as food and medication” says the association on its website.
It suggests possible help from agents to particularly vulnerable tenants include:
- assistance with receiving food and medicine;
- ‘signposting’ tenants to other areas of support;
- support through regular phone calls, letters or emails, too staye off loneliness.
