Older Peoples Services
Information on the available services for Older People
There are a range of care and support services available, including
- Homecare and Reablement
- Community Alarm and Telehealthcare
- Respite at home
Day activities are provided specifically for older people in a variety of settings, based in the community provided by Inverclyde HSCP and a number of third Sector organisations.
The Hillend Centre provides a day service for older people and is the management base for the small group service, which as the name suggests provides the opportunity for a smaller number of older people to get together in various locations around Inverclyde. Older people are actively involved in the planning and delivery of these services. Get in touch if you would be interested in getting involved.
Accessing day services funded by Health and Social Care Partnership requires an assessment of your health and social care needs. This is a needs based assessment which determines what support would be the most appropriate for your circumstances.
Please see under Assessment for more information, if you do not wish an assessment or you do not meet the eligibility criteria, we will give you advice about local voluntary and private services available in Inverclyde.
If you are assessed as needing services Self Directed Support (SDS) gives you the choice of four options to help you organise your support. SDS is about helping people who need support to have as much choice and control as possible over how their support is planned and provided.
