The “People at the Centre” project is funded by the Scottish Government and led by The Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland (the ALLIANCE), working with the Care Inspectorate and Scottish Care.
People at the Centre would like to invite adults who live in Care Homes or who access Care at Home support to share their recent experiences of health and social care and wellbeing, and also to offer their suggestions about how health and social care support and services can improve now and in the future. Feedback will be used anonymously to form part of a report for the Scottish Government to inform decisions about changes to health and social care support.
We would value your assistance in supporting adults who live in Care Homes or who access Care at Home support to have their voices heard as part of the project while understanding that this is a challenging time for care providers and staff to support engagement activity.
Participation in this engagement is entirely voluntary and materials have been developed to support people to take part and staff to support in as flexible a way as possible. This includes a range of methods – a telephone conversation, short survey or hard copy form – for people to share their views.
We would also value input from carers, relatives and friends of people who live in Care Homes or access Care at Home support. This can be done by supporting the individual to get involved themselves or by sharing views and experiences on their behalf.
Full information and downloadable resources can be found here – Engagement activity for adults who live in Care Homes or who access Care at Home support – People and Networks (alliance-scotland.org.uk)
Participation is possible up to 7th December 2020 and your support to help people to take part by this date would be very much appreciated.
