Description:
The Working Group is proposing a new model of support in the community. The model envisages that people living in congregated settings will move to dispersed forms of housing in ordinary communities, provided mainly by housing authorities. They will have the same entitlement to mainstream community health and social services as any other citizen, such as GP services, home help and public health nursing services, and access to primary care teams. They will also have access to specialised services and hospital services based on an individual assessment. People will get the supports they need to help them to live independently and to be part of their local community. A core value underpinning our proposal is that people should make their own life choices, neither the HSE nor Service Providers own a client but have a responsibility to maximise their independence.
