A new project for Pilgrim Care, we are deploying small 'Pi' internet connected devices which connect to an elderly person's TV and enable them to stay connected with the local community, watching local church services, engaging with chair exercise classes, and enjoying locally based TV programs of cultural or historic interest. There is no programming, tapes or disks needed for these devices, the viewer simply switches on their TV at the appropriate time to view a programme. This is a lovely way to allow people who may be isolated, to stay in touch with the community.
A donation of £79 funds the purchase of one of these devices and its programming for a year.
Pilgrim Care is a local charity whose primary aim is to care for elderly residents of St Andrews and its environs.
This ministry is conducted in cooperation with Parish Nursing Ministries(UK), a national charity. Pilgrim Care St Andrews' Parish Nurse serves the elderly of St Andrews and wider district and brings a wealth of professional experience to her work.
Based in the local church community, parish nurses support people towards whole person healthcare. Whether it’s simply giving moral support during a medical crisis – giving general health advice – “signposting” people to various support or medical services – praying for people – clarifying medical procedures or issues, etc – or simply listening (which they do an awful lot of!) - they focus on the person, rather than just a specific medical condition.
