2022 Case Studies Pack
- June 2022
Tameside Council is working to improve the quality of care and support that vulnerable people receive by maximising the choice of support available and by creating better quality of life and experiences for individuals. As part of the Living Well at Home programme, we have been committed to enabling local people to remain well and living independently in their own homes and communities of choice. Younger adults and older people who, because of long term health conditions need additional support, can expect a good quality service that is person centred and meets their needs, is available when it’s needed and is sustainable.
To achieve this in the context of long-standing financial pressures and increasing demand, we have embraced innovative opportunities and support solutions. Whilst Living Well at Home will continue to assist with the practical help that people need, it is committed to changing the way this support is provided; shifting the focus of care away from tasks and back to the person.
Changing the way support is commissioned will, in turn, enable a more collaborative relationship between the person needing support and the staff providing that support; putting the individual at the centre and, wherever possible and appropriate, exploring options that are not necessarily all about paid support.
