The essential guide to choosing and paying for care and support
Our focus is to help you to stay as independent as possible so you can live a more fulfilled, enjoyable life with strong links to your community. This Adult Social Care Directory contains useful information for younger and older adults, carers and families. Here, you can find information about active living, staying connected and money matters, as well as a range of services to support you and help keep you independent. Where you need support, we will make it as easy as possible to get the right support, at the right time and in the right place. This will mean working closely with local community groups, the voluntary sector, your carers and family to support you. To help you to remain living in your own home, we will work alongside organisations such as healthcare providers to develop local, communitybased support. This will include, wherever possible, reducing avoidable hospital admissions and long-term residential care. The type and level of support you can expect will adapt and differ as your needs change. We will have conversations with you about how your needs may best be met. This includes providing advice and guidance, signposting you to available community resources and assessing your care and support needs. If you fund your own care, we also have information available to help you to make well informed decisions about your future. There are three key stages of support: 1. Helping you to help yourself. 2. Helping you when you need it. 3. Helping you to be independent over the longerterm and keeping your progress under review.
