Advice and Information About... Managing the circumstances of disability and ill health to remain independent Sources of informal help and advice Entitlement to formal services Costs of care The way the system works Navigating the system Managing the crisis
Prevention and early intervention Reablement Housing options with access and support Support for informal carers Assistive technology and telehealth Early diagnosis and support for people with dementia Falls prevention Preventing and responding to strokes Public Health programmes Making all public services and communities sensitive and accessible to people with disabilities
Assessment, support planning and personal budgets Co-producing the assessment An indicative budget, using resource allocation systems Support planning – taking account of the options in the market Person centred approaches leads to new services - personal assistants, “shared lives” and different arrangements for respite care and day care Much closer involvement of informal carers Setting personal budgets Supporting arrangements for Direct Payments, e.g. accounts and payments Review

Personalisation Survey 2014 Some areas for development Addressing variation – Care Act compliance Market development such as micro commissioning and supporting growth of providers Training and development of staff on outcomes based and asset based approaches More users and carers in service design and quality assurance Investing in social capital and mapping assets Market position statements and local accounts sharing progress
