Living and feeling better can start with a simple step-connecting. Health Connections Mendip is provided by your Mendip GP practices to improve your health and wellbeing.
We provide free and confidential emotional support and information to anyone who is affected by the loss, or anticipated loss, of a pet or assistance animal through illness, euthanasia, natural death or other circumstances like theft or attack. We commit to providing this support service every day of the year from 8.30am to 8.30pm.
The Cinnamon Trust is a national network of community service volunteers that provide practical help to people over 65 years of age or anyone in the final stages of a terminal illness. The service covers any aspect of day to day care of pets, for example, walking the dog for a housebound owner.
A national fostering service is provided for pets whose owners face a spell in hospital. Volunteers take pets into their own homes and supply love and care in abundance until owner and pet can be reunited. For more information about the service or to become a volunteer please call us or visit our website. Please note referrals need to be done by the individual.
