Wrap around (integrated community care)
Some people need support at home from services like community nurses/district nurses, therapists, and social care. We are calling this “wrap around care”. We want the services to work better together to meet the needs of the patient and their family.
Each person’s care will be individual to their needs, not a one size fits all approach. This means we need to listen to the patient and their family about what is important to them.
People will receive care in their own home so that they can live independently at home for as long as possible. This is no different to how people currently receive care, but people will be supported for a longer length of time and their care will be more joined up.
We will make sure that everyone has a care plan so that all the health and social care teams involved in a person’s care have the same information and understand a person’s situation and goals and wishes.
