Description:
The establishment of the Social Care Division to support the ongoing service requirements of older people and people with disabilities is a fundamental step in moving forward with the design and implementation of models of care across both these Care Groups. These models of care will support and maintain people to live at home or in their own community and to promote their independence and lifestyle choice in as far as possible. Older people with care needs must be provided with a continuum of services such as home care, day care community support and / or intermediate care beds to avoid unnecessary acute hospital admissions and have their required treatments and supports delivered within their local community at primary care level in as far as possible. People with disabilities must have access to the supports they require to achieve optimal independence and control which will enable them to pursue activities and living arrangements of their choice. Supports for both groups must be responsive to service user needs and be provided flexibly at the least possible unit cost to build a sustainable system into the future.
