Our Independence Team covers the whole Craven area. Our Social Workers and Occupational Therapists offer assessment and time limited interventions with the aim of maximising a person’s independence and recovery.
Support may be carried out by our Reablement Teams, working with people for up to 6 weeks to assist them to regain their independence skills.
Our Occupational Therapists also assess for equipment to promote or maintain independence, including where major adaptations are required which may be funded through Disabled Facilities Grants.
We have 3 locality based Planned Care and Support Teams who work with adults and carers to achieve their medium and longer term goals and outcomes again embedded in the values and principles of recovery and maximising independence.
The service ensures care is co-ordinated around the adult with care and support needs and their carers with the aims of maximising independence and promoting wellbeing. Effective personalised support planning and asset and strength based approaches to assessment and review are essential elements of this service.
