Residents of West Wiltshire requiring help to remain independent will soon be experiencing a new type of care delivered by Somerset Care At Home. The organisation was one of four successful providers in the county who will together be delivering 'Help to Live at Home', a new service developed and funded by Wiltshire County Council and the NHS.
The new service aims to provide extra help and support to older people or those who, as a result of illness or disability, need help to stay safe, well and happy in their own homes. A key feature of the service is reablement, meaning that people will be helped to do things for themselves so that in future they may be more able to fully enjoy life.
Mark Deadman, Assistant Director for The Somerset Care Group, said, "After a stringent tender process, we are delighted to be one of four successful providers selected by Wiltshire County Council. We are working closely with the council to ensure that the service we provide is of the highest quality and look forward to meeting our new staff and clients in the coming months".
