Rochdale Borough Council's adult care team is going the extra mile over Christmas to provides services to people across the borough.
Staff are working throughout the festive period to deal with emergencies and ensure people are supported and cared for.
The council's emergency number for adult care services (0300 303 8875) will be staffed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Year's Day and the weekend of Saturday, 30 December 2017- Sunday, 31 December 2017.
On the other days over Christmas, the usual adult care phone line (0300 303 8886) will be available for service users to get in touch between 8.45am-4.45pm. Outside of those times, people should call the emergency number.
'The council's dedicated service means that help and support will be available to those most in need every day over the festive break'
Councillor Iftikhar Ahmed, cabinet member for adult care said: "The excellent service we are providing over Christmas underlines what a dedicated and hard-working team of staff we have. No one should feel isolated, alone or vulnerable over the festive period. We are proud of the service we offer not just at Christmas, but all year round."
