Preventative commissioning

5. Wellbeing and independence at home

This service focuses on support in and around a person’s home environment and is designed to enable its users to continue living in their own homes, independently and safely.

It will provide short-term support or help people to organise longer-term arrangements to do things like:

  • shopping
  • maintaining and cleaning their home
  • gardening
  • home safety checks
  • help with improving fuel efficiency and the warmth of a house

The service may also suggest the need for aids and adaptations to make a home easier and safer to live in as people’s needs change.

Wellbeing and Independence at home is provided jointly by Age UK and Stockport Homes and will be prioritised towards people who are overcoming acute or sudden changes in their circumstances.
