What the Independent Living Team do
Support to maintain your independence will be provided by our independent living officers and support officers.
Your support plan will show agreed contact with our staff. Should you wish to contact us to discuss your support please phone us directly on 01604 838462.
Our staff will advise you about keeping safe and secure in your home and will support you to contact other agencies by making referrals on your behalf, particularly if an emergency occurs.
Our officers can direct you to other support services and organisations that provide care and can give you practical help and advice about how to contact them. They can also give practical help in an an emergency and collect urgent prescriptions if you are ill. However they are not allowed to administer medication.
Our community development officers, along with other support staff, will promote social activities available at the scheme or in the local area.
If you need information about different religious or cultural activities available locally our staff can also provide this, including addresses of churches, religious centres and community meeting places.
