Live in Homecare Information Care Hub to go Live
As part of the UKHCA’s Live in Care consultation group Everycare Eastbourne have been involved in the development of the live in homecare information hub which will go live in the next few weeks.
The website will provide a one stop shop for people looking to find out about live in care. It will cover what people should and should not expect from their providers as well as detailing the different services that are available, funding issues, case studies, contact details for organisations and up to the minute news about issues affecting the industry.
This is the first part of a package of measures which are designed to raise people’s awareness of what live in care is which will include articles in magazines and news papers as well as interviews on radio and possibly on TV. Market research indicates that live in care is seen to be widely unknown by the vast majority of people. This means that it is rarely even considered as an alternative to Nursing or Residential care.
With limited care home beds available the backlog from hospitals is putting pressure on the NHS and creating bed blocking. The government are now seeing that Live in Care could play a significant part in their strategy going forward. The group are now working closely with Glen Mason, Director of People and Communities from The Department of Health in trying to develop a workable strategy to help deliver a quality live in care service across the UK over the coming years.
