Care4you Home Support

What does it do?

Our Home Support service concentrates on providing a specialist service in four main areas:
* Short Term Intervention
* Mental health
* Adults with complex needs
* Night Care Visiting Home Support service
 
General long term home support is solely provided by a range of independent care providers, through contracts with the council.
 
Short Term Intervention
This team help people to regain their abilities or confidence in maintaining their independence, so they can continue to live in their own home. The team provides support for a limited period of time. They aim to help people who may have had a stay in hospital, or who need help to avoid going into hospital or in other circumstances where someone needs help to regain their independence.
    
Mental Health
Staff in this team provide support to both adults who have a diagnosis of chronic and enduring mental health issues and their carers.
       
Adults with Complex Needs
This team provides support for adults who, for example, may be vulnerable, at risk of being abused, or have complex health and care needs, such as people who have been diagnosed with a long term health condition or who have extensive care needs that involve other professionals.
        
Night Care Visiting Home Support service
This service is for people who require support at home during the night. Carers are available to provide personal care, emotional support and encouragement. The service also supports customers who are receiving our Short Term Intervention services.
 
The service is available between 10pm and 7am, 365 days per year.
Night Care visiting is provided subject to an assessment of your needs.

Who it is for?

People who need to regain abilities and confidence so they can continue to live at home, adults who have a diagnosis of chronic and enduring mental health issues and their carers, adults who, for example, may be vulnerable, at risk of being abused, or have complex health and care needs, and people who require support at home during the night.
