Yn gyntaf, gobeithio eich bod yn cadw’n saff. Mae gen i gymaint o edmygedd o bob un ohonoch chi gyda’r gwaith rydych chi’n ei wneud fel staff ar y rheng flaen; nid yn unig ar gyfer pobl sydd wedi’u heffeithio â dementia, ond i bob un person ar draws Ynys Môn a Gwynedd, diolch gen i a’r tîm
Rydym wedi bod yn meddwl am sut y gallwn eich helpu tu allan i Dementia Connect a phobl sydd wedi’u heffeithio â dementia ar draws Ynys Môn a Gwynedd. Tra bod hyn yn mynd yn ei flaen, rwyf yn hapus i newid y ffyrdd rydyn ni’n gweithio i ddiwallu anghenion eich staff a’r rhai sydd angen cefnogaeth. Ymddiheuraf i’r rhai ohonoch sydd wedi derbyn ebost tebyg bore ma.
Os ydych yn adnabod unhryw un sy’n byw â dementia, gofalwyr, teulu neu ffrindiau, a fyddai’n elwa o alwadau ffôn pob bythefnos (gall fod yn llai neu’n fwy rheolaidd os gofynnir am hynny) gan Ymgynghorwr Dementia lleol (dwyieithog) rhowch wybod i ni. Hyd yn oed os nad oes angen unrhyw gymorth penodol arnynt ar hyn o bryd, rydym yn hapus i wneud y galwadau hyn. Rwyf yn hapus, am y tro, i gyfeiriadau beidio â chael eu gwneud drwy Dementia Connect, ac iddynt gael eu gwneud yn uniongyrchol i ein Ymgynghorwyr Dementia, neu i fy hun, ac iddynt gael eu brysbennu i Ymgynghorwr Dementia yn eu hardal. Mae’r Ymgynghorwyr yn gweithio’n agos gyda’r cynghorau gwirfoddol i wybod pa gefnogaeth sydd ar gael a gallant eu cysylltu lle bo angen. Hefyd, rwyf yn gobeithio y byddwn yn gwasanaethu fel pwynt cyswllt ar gyfer eich rolau fel y gallwn roi adborth i chi a nodi unrhyw beth sydd angen eich mewnbwn. Y cyfan sydd ei angen arnom yw eu caniatâd llafar i’w manylion gael eu trosglwyddo ac i dderbyn y galwadau. Rydym hefyd yn fwy na pharod i weithio’n lleol gyda’r cysylltwyr cymunedol, i rannu gwaith lle bo angen ac i ddarparu’r mewnbwn arbenigol hwnnw os oes angen.
Rydym hefyd yn cynnal grwpiau ‘singing for the brain’ drwy Youtube a Zoom; felly os yw pobl eisiau cymryd rhan yn y rhain adref, neu os oes cartrefi gofal a allai fod eisiau dod â phobl ynghyd i gymryd rhan, rhowch wybod i mi a gallaf drosglwyddo’r manylion ymlaen.
Os ydych eisiau awgrymu unhryw beth arall y gallwn ei wneud, gwnewch hynny – rydyn ni wir yn agored i’ch cefnogi chi i gyd gymaint ag y gallwn ni yn ystod yr amser hwn.
Byddaf yn cyfathrebu â chi i gyd pan fydd y broses atgyfeirio yn dod yn fusnes fel arfer.

Unscrupulous criminals are exploiting fears about COVID-19 to prey on members of the public, particularly older and vulnerable people who are isolated from family and friends. National Trading Standards is warning people to remain vigilant following a rise in coronavirus-related scams that seek to benefit from the public’s concern and uncertainty over COVID-19.
Members of the public should ignore scam products such as supplements and anti-virus kits that falsely claim to cure or prevent COVID-19. In some cases individuals may be pressurised on their own doorsteps to buy anti-virus kits or persuaded into purchasing products that are advertised on their social media feeds. In addition, some call centres that previously targeted UK consumers with dubious health products are now offering supplements that supposedly prevent COVID-19.
Communities are also being urged to look out for signs of neighbours being targeted by doorstep criminals. While there are genuine groups of volunteers providing help during self-isolation, there have been reports of criminals preying on residents – often older people or people living with long-term health conditions – by cold-calling at their homes and offering to go to the shops for them. The criminals often claim to represent charities to help them appear legitimate before taking the victim’s money. There are genuine charities providing support, so consumers should be vigilant and ask for ID from anyone claiming to represent a charity.
COVID-19 scams identified include:
- Criminals targeting older people on their doorstep and offering to do their shopping. Thieves take the money and do not return.
- Doorstep cleansing services that offer to clean drives and doorways to kill bacteria and help prevent the spread of the virus.
- Email scams that trick people into opening malicious attachments, which put people at risk of identity theft with personal information, passwords, contacts and bank details at risk. Some of these emails have lured people to click on attachments by offering information about people in the local area who are affected by coronavirus.
- Fake online resources – such as false Coronavirus Maps – that deliver malware such as AZORult Trojan, an information stealing program which can infiltrate a variety of sensitive data. A prominent example that has deployed malware is ‘corona-virus-map[dot]com’.
- Companies offering fake holiday refunds for individuals who have been forced to cancel their trips. People seeking refunds should also be wary of fake websites set up to claim holiday refunds.
- Fake sanitisers, face masks and Covid19 swabbing kits sold online and door-to-door. These products can often be dangerous and unsafe. There are reports of some potentially harmful hand sanitiser containing glutaral (or glutaraldehyde), which was banned for human use in 2014.
- As more people self-isolate at home there is an increasing risk that telephone scams will also rise, including criminals claiming to be your bank, mortgage lender or utility company.
- There have been reports of thieves extorting money from consumers by claiming they are collecting donations for a COVID-19 ‘vaccine’.
- Illegal money lenders are expected to prey on people’s financial hardship, lending money before charging extortionate interest rates and fees through threats and violence
People are being encouraged to protect their neighbours by joining Friends Against Scams, which provides free online training to empower people to take a stand against scams. To complete the online modules, visit riendsagainstscams.org.uk.
NTS is also issuing urgent advice to help prevent people falling victim to COVID-19 scams through its Friends Against Scams initiative.
Members of the public are being urged to keep in contact with family members regularly and inform them of the most prolific scams and the possible dangers to them. If someone has been targeted by a scam it can be reported to Action Fraud online at actionfraud.police.uk or by calling 0300 123 2040.

Anyone over 70 in Wales can register with Age Cymru, free of charge, to receive a regular telephone call from the charity in either English or Welsh. All you have to do call the Age Cymru Advice Number on 08000 223 444 or email [email protected].

Ynys Môn Covid19 support (including Mon Community Link)
Covid-19 support teams are currently being developed across the Island by willing individuals who want to help. The aim of the Covid-19 Support Teams will be to provide support in the event of someone self-isolating and in need of food or hygiene essentials. All community members who are kindly offering their support will have varying availability and may not be able to respond immediately. Should you be in a position to help others and it is safe to do so, please contact the Covid-19 Support Team for your area (find out where your nearest Support Team is by contacting Môn Community Link).
Mantell Gwynedd – Caernarfon (Gwynedd CVC)
