Our community support team provides short term help at home. We offer specialist home care services across North Lincolnshire. We support vulnerable adults and older people to help them live independently in their own home and lead a fulfilling life.
We know at times of illness, disability or getting older you may find it difficult to cope. You may be restricted in your ability to undertake your personal care needs. With your consent we will work with you. We can provide rehabilitation and reablement services to help you get back on your feet following stays in hospital, after illness or after discharge from residential care.
We also offer support to prevent you from being admitted to hospital, respite or residential care. Your family carers may need some support from time to time in a crisis.
We will monitor your progress weekly. When you have achieved your goals we will discuss this with you and reduce our support as necessary, enabling you to regain your independence.
If you require ongoing services at home you will be assessed for a personal budget. You can then spend this money on the most appropriate home care for you. This means you have choice and control on how you are supported.
If you need short term support from the community support team, a care practitioner from adult services or another professional will assess you. They will work with you to identify the support you need. With your consent this is written down in a support plan. “Assessed” means we talk to you about what you can and cannot do for yourself. We may also talk to other people who know you such as your GP.
