Reshaping Care for Older People Christie Report Health and Social Care Integration Joint Commissioning Plan for Older People Why are we having this discussion?
Empower Older Adults and provide opportunities Provide safe environments that promote independence not dependence Allow choice of high quality responsive services Our Vision: To enable older people in Stirling and Clackmannanshire to live full and positive lives in their own homes or when this is not possible, within homely settings within supportive Communities To achieve this:
Ensuring older adults are at the heart of decisions Value community assets Supporting independence Collaboration across the partnership Communication The challenge?
Working in a whole systems approach Agreeing key outcomes and a shared direction Understanding of roles What will this look like and feel like in reality? The role of services in achieving this
A whole systems approach? Inputs Older adult/ Service Needs/ Problem Analysis Decide Goals and Priorities Identify, Assess & Select Means & Options ImplementOutputs Outcomes Evaluate At all stages incrementalism and value judgements Systems Model (Modification of Thomas, 1988)
Changing demographics Working together we can achieve more and have greater success We want to ensure services are fit for purpose To make sure that services are ‘Right’ Why do this?
Community support can reduce institutional care Inadequate care will put people at risk of ill health, isolation and stigma There is increasing evidence that chronic illness is strongly related to networks and communities. Well- being is particularly dependent upon relationships (Foot & Hopkins, 2010) Foot, J., & Hopkins, T., (2010). A glass half-full: how an asset approach can improve community health and well- being, London: Improvement & Development Agency. What difference can the community really make?
Our Asset Map Build a greater sense of community locally Support an appreciation of older adult needs Shared responsibility? Consider hidden/vulnerable groups We need a shared strategy! What can we do to help?
What is happening already? Are we using good practice to best effect? Collaborative working Do our networks make best use of our assets? Understanding the current picture
What do we mean by outcomes? A definition: ‘impact, effect or consequence of help received’ (Nicholas et al., 2003). How do outcomes effect our work? What is the impact of what we do and what is the effect of our actions? Nicholas, E., Qureshi, H., & Bamford, C., (2003).
