Issue details

Residential care and day care for older people

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.
