What are the integrated day services for older adults?

The service provides a range of health and social services, individual assessments, treatments, therapeutic activities and social care to people over the age of 65 who are considered to have complex needs.

Are there any charges?

Light snacks and refreshments are available throughout the day. If you stay all day a meal will be provided, for which we make a small charge.

How do I access this service?

A member of staff from either health or housing and social work services can arrange for an assessment of your needs. Following agreement of the locality planning group you will be offered support, treatment and rehabilitation after which a further review will be carried out.

Who will provide my care?

We have both health and social work staff working in the integrated day service who will provide the care and support you need.

What happens if I need help to get there?

We will discuss transport to and from the service with you during your assessment. In some circumstances, we may be able to provide this.

Can I bring some personal items with me?

You can bring personal belongings with you to the service but they remain your responsibility. We would advise that you have your belongings insured during your stay.

What rights do I have if I choose to attend?

We display the charter of rights for people who use the service in the reception area. The charter emphasises some of the fundamental rights promoted by health and housing and social work services about individuality, respect, dignity and choice.

All information that we hold on record in the service is treated confidentially and held in a secure place. You can ask a member of staff for access to it if you wish.
