The service will initially provide a consultation assessment service with the individual, running alongside the existing care package/plans, if these are available.
This allows us to gain a full understanding of the individual’s history, social status, preferences, culture, wishes and preferred outcome for the care plan, to be agreed on together. The individual may create a personal statement to be shared with the care team to enhance personal communication.
We can then determine, together with the individual and support network, the level of care and support at home required. We will be actively involved throughout an individual’s plan with us, in consulting with them regarding other services available, including technology aids, as well as developing and improving social inclusion and access to their communities.
With the ever-changing services that are in our communities, we find ourselves with an abundance of choice. For us to develop signposting with our clients, it is important to help them understand and to be aware of the services on offer. Encouraging and empowering individuals to access these services has many benefits. Not only will it help towards the prevention of social isolation and the issues this causes, but it also helps to widen the knowledge a person has regarding the many services out there to support them with any health and mental well-being needs they may require.
