Inverclyde Day Care Services were last reviewed 12 years ago, resulting in a modernised, better equipped service. Inverclyde currently provide and purchase 644 places per week across both small and larger group Day Care. A further review is underway. This review takes place alongside, and in recognition of, an ageing population, policy directives such as the Scottish Government's Reshaping Care Agenda and the Inverclyde Joint Strategic Commissioning Plan for Older People.
Within Inverclyde, Day Services take the form of Day Care provided within a building outwith a person's own home in a group setting. The overall aim is to meet assessed need and outcomes through a range of social interventions. Alongside social contact and interaction, day care may provide respite for carers.
Our aim is to deliver the specific outcomes for Older People's Services and we will do this by:
· Examining current provision within Inverclyde.
· Reshaping care for older people accessing day opportunities in line with the stated outcomes.
· Developing a holistic vision for a range of day opportunities delivered by providers across all sectors.
· Developing referral processes that support accessible routes to services focusing on community based and Dementia Specialist Care.
· Considering the impact of Self Directed Support and the potential shift toward individualised care for people.
We recognise the value and potential of our existing traditional Day Care Resources to refocus their contribution in line with the needs, aspirations and lifestyle choices of future generations of frail older people.
Current and future challenges include:
The shift in demographics and subsequent increase in demand.
Constraints on public finance.
Expectations of service users and families as society and generations views and outcomes change.
Self- Directed Support (SDS).
Partnership working with third and independent sector to ensure adequate community based supports and opportunities.
The review is ongoing and may result in an opportunity that will be best fulfilled by way of a tender exercise. In the first instance we would expect to engage with interested providers to give more information and explore our intentions. These sessions we would be expected to be held at some point in February. Providers who wish to take part in these information sessions or indeed in tendering should express their interest by registering against this notice.
Further information will be made available at an information session planned for the 17th of March in Inverclyde. Please register your in taking part using the record your interest button via this notice.
Please contact Barry McDougall for further information on the information session on the 17th of March.
