Knowsley Council: Health and Social Care L36

Location: UK » North West » L
Sector: Health, Social care

Service: Externally Commissioned Services (incl Care Management and Safeguarding)
Title: 50% reduction in support services relating to older person’s sheltered housing.
Impact: This proposal will work with providers to re-prioritise support to those most at risk of losing their independence. At present, each scheme has a dedicated scheme manager. The likely result of this work will be that schemes will share managers. There will be a reduction in preventative work but issues of safety and immediate need will be dealt with. There may be an adverse reaction from individuals and family members and we will need to underpin the service change with a consultation process.
