Care and Support at Home
Updated on 02/08/2016
With the implementation of the Care Act 2014 and drive towards closer integration with care as set out in the NHS 5 Year Forward View, there is an urgent need for commissioners and housing, care and support providers to be able to access the latest policy and practice developments to respond to the changing landscape of care and support at home.
These pages provide useful tools, resources and examples of innovative approaches to enabling older people and people with disabilities to live well and independently in their own homes. They provide specific information across 8 key areas for adult social care commissioners, housing and care providers, primary care services and NHS hospital trusts on shaping, commissioning, funding, and delivering a range of care and support solutions for people living in their own homes.
- Assessment and care and support planning
- Market Shaping: Commissioning and procurement of care and support at home
- Service Provision and Innovative Delivery Models
- Co-production and community approaches
- Prevention, promoting quality and outcomes
- Supporting Carers
- Adult Safeguarding
- End of Life Care
- Home care locator
We are grateful to Home Group for their support to enable us to develop and maintain these pages.
