If your assessment identifies you as eligible for social care support, we will work with you to create a support plan. Together we will discuss the kinds of activities and other support that may already be available to you. We will identify any changes which could be made to help you live more independently.
Here are some examples of what might be included in a support plan:
- Special equipment in your home
- Activities, clubs and social groups
- Meals delivered directly to your door
We can offer short term support and long term support.
Short term support
Getting well again – Home First – Following a spell in hospital, Intermediate Care can help by supporting you to stay at home while recovering from injury or illness, leave hospital more quickly following treatment and in some cases prevent the need to be admitted to hospital.
Long term support
Following your assessment we will be able to tell you what assistance and support we can offer you to meet your identified social care need.
We can also tell you if we can offer you financial support and how much this will be. This is called a Personal Budget and it is an amount of money that you can use to plan your support and meet your needs.
