7 (7) INVESTING IN REABLEMENT – HOME FIRST COMMUNITY – The Director: Adults and Community Wellbeing submitted a report seeking approval for changes to the staffing establishment within the Home First Community Service.
The council continued to prioritise vulnerable adults and ensured they were both supported and safe from the risk of abuse, and that lives were transformed through access to services. The council aim was to provide help at the earliest point and at the lowest level of service provision.
The Care Act (2014) placed a responsibility on councils to ensure that people in the area received services that prevented, reduced and delayed their need for long-term care and support.
The review had considered the role, function and responsibility of the service and its interface with health and other partner agencies. The review set out to evaluate the activities provided by the service to create more investment into short-term reablement support in the community.
In addition the new service had been designed to respond to increasing demand to support people, ensuring people left hospital in a timely way and provided people with assistance to avoid hospital admission and regain their independence wherever possible.
Resolved – That the changes to the staffing establishment, as set out in the report and accompanying appendix, be approved.
