Decision details

Residential care and day care for older people

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes


To ensure the sustainability of adult social care services now and in the future, approval will be sought to publicly consult on a redesign of the services provided by the council through the 16 council-owned and managed residential care homes and ten building-based day care centres for older people.
The proposed consultation would seek views on future delivery models that would ensure that care services focus on support for older people to retain or regain their independence, to continue to live in their own homes and interact in their own communities, and when residential care is needed, a choice of quality options are available.




1)   Approve the programme of formal public consultation for a period of 12 weeks on the two proposed options concerning the future of the eleven residential homes and integrated day opportunities for older people, and all of the non-integrated day opportunities for older people; and


2)   Receive a further report following the conclusion of the consultation process, including an Equality Impact Analysis.
