Innovative Care Consortium in Hampshire
Everycare Central Hants have joined forces with five other care companies in Hampshire and have successfully got onto the Hampshire County Council Framework for supplying care at home. We have combined under the name Wand Care.
The new Care at Home service is being introduced from the 1st April 2015 and will bring in the requirements of the Care Act 2014. There is more emphasis on helping people to do more for themselves and to move away from time and task to a person centred approach with specific outcomes for the client.
The Care Act 2014 also allows for carers themselves to have needs assessments to address the issues they have with looking after their loved ones.
In addition to Care at Home, Wand Care are, also, tendering for the Care of Victim Service in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. We, also, plan to work together for further opportunities to work across Hampshire in a cohesive way without losing the identity of the individual consortium members.
