The Community Adult Team provides support to adults, aged 16 and over who may need support.
Anyone can refer including yourself, family members, someone who is looking after you, health and social care professionals and voluntary organisations. If someone is referring on your behalf we prefer they have your permission to do so.
Following an assessment the team can provide the help and support to adults and those who care for them, so that people can live as independently as possible in the community.
We can provide support to people in their own homes or in other care settings should that be necessary and also offer support to carers.
It is important that we recognise people's abilities and the optimum level of independence through rehab and reablement. Some people may only need support for a short time others may require ongoing assistance with care. The level and type of support will be based on an assessment of need.
We can provide help with the following depending on individual need.
- Independent living
- Mobility - getting around
- Care at Home
- Exercise programmes
- Nursing care
- Falls prevention
- Arranging packages of care and community alarms
- Healthy living
