Hello Carlow How R U? Day

Askea Parish Community are hosting a Coffee Morning from 10am to 12 Noon on Thursday 10th May. Everyone is welcome to this free event. Why not call in and have a chat and a cuppa…and ask “Hello Carlow. How R U?”

Thursday 10th May this year will be a day dedicated to remind people to ask family, friends and colleagues the question “How R U?” in a meaningful way.

Connecting regularly and meaningfully is one thing everyone can do to make a difference to anyone who might be struggling.

Asking the question can be done by anyone at any place or time, and all that’s required is a listening ear, a little compassion while following the 5 steps

H.. How are you? Ask open ended questions. Choose an appropriate space to talk.

E… Engage with the person. Be friendly, use eye contact.

L… Listen. Be non-judgmental, don’t try to solve the problem for them, just listen.

L… Learn about them. Help the person to seek a solution for themselves, go to the GP, attend local supports services, help-line etc.

O… Ongoing support. Check in with the person to see how they are progressing.
