Objective A - Older people and their carers are able to access support when they need it.


  • Block booking additional respite beds in care home across the County to ensure that when carers need a break, that there is good quality  respite care available to meet their needs, and that this is available to book in advance so that carers can make plans.
  • Commissioning home care providers to deliver care in people’s homes.
  • Commissioning Night Sitting services in people’s homes.
  • Commissioning day care providers where older people can attend a building based day centre and access activities in the community.
  • Developing a dementia navigation offer to enable people with dementia and their families to understand the dementia pathway, explore options and prepare for the future. This would include offering information and practical guidance to help people understand dementia, cope with day-to-day challenges and prepare for the future. The service would offer information to people who are worried about their memory and ongoing support to people affected by dementia face to face or over the phone.
  • Refreshing our Carers strategy for how we support carers to live a healthy and independent life and keep caring as long as they choose to. The current strategy already includes:
    • Working in partnership with carers, health and social care providers, communities and employers with the aspiration to develop a carer friendly society, which values and supports carers to fulfil their caring role and maintain their health and wellbeing.
    • A Carers Partnership Board that involves carers and organisations which support carers and aims to develop a carer friendly society where carers are clearly valued, supported and cared for, and supports delivery of the carers strategy.
