Torbay Council, Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust, and the Clinical Commissioning Group are proposing to change the way Adult Social Care is delivered in Torbay.
To make the change in delivery we will need to introduce a new eligibility criteria and an assessment process that focuses on short term wellbeing, early help and prevention as well as the acute and more intensive services. Whilst working with the adult, any carers and their family to identify what matters to them and how this can be met, we will consider the person’s own strengths and capabilities. This includes what support and help might be available from their wider support network or within the community as well as what services can do for them.
The link below leads to the Adult Social Care Eligibility consultation which closes on 9th February 2018. It’s important that as many people as possible contribute to the consultation and it would be great if you could share your views.
