Coronavirus, Hertbeats and ‘Buddying’
Brian York our Chairman offers this suggestion:
I think the Americans call it ‘buddying’. Basically it’s keeping an eye out for each other and helping others where possible. Hertbeats is a SUPPORT GROUP and most of us are elderly with heart issues and therefore may need support in the current situation.
I suggest that each of us forms a small ‘buddy group’ of Hertbeats members who live close to us and/or whom we know. The idea is to keep in touch mainly by ‘phone (and possibly email) just to make sure that our friends in Hertbeats are OK. Setting up a WhatsApp group could also be very useful.
If you agree with this, please take the initiative and contact just a few members to stay in touch with. You may ‘belong’ to more than one ‘buddy group’.
There may be some members who are quite happy with support from family or neighbours so see no need for this. That’s fine.
Please pass on this message if you can to those Hertbeats members who do not have access to email and our website. If you need to find a member’s telephone number or email address, please contact me:
