Have your say - Review of Domiciliary Care (Home Care) for Older People

Residents will have the chance to influence how domiciliary care for older people will be provided in the future.

This consultation closed on 19th February

Domiciliary Care, also known as Home Care, is provided to people who live in their own homes but who require additional support that allows them to maintain their independence and quality of life. Anyone at any stage of life could require domiciliary care.

The services are provided by the Council, sometimes jointly with the NHS and sometimes by other organisations which have a contract with the local authority.

Starting this month, people will be invited to have their say on proposals to redesign the services to further enable people to live as independently as they can in their own homes.

The proposals include:

  • Re-design an existing short-term service which helps people to do things for themselves by learning or re-learning the skills necessary for daily living, for example after a stay in hospital. This is known as a reablement service.
  • Explore the potential to re-design the existing long term services to include a rapid response service and a specialist dementia service.
  • Re-design the way contracts are drawn up to ensure that the same service can be delivered no matter where you live in Swansea and less travelling time for care workers, giving them more time to care.

The Council is consulting on these proposals until 19th February 2017. Have your say below.   

Questionnaire

At this stage no decisions have been made. If you are currently receiving one of these services or may require them in the future you will continue to receive the service you need.

The feedback you provide will help inform recommendations made to the Council's Cabinet which is responsible for deciding how services should be provided in the future.
