Personalising social care
Personalisation continues to be a challenging concept for many, despite the benefits it offers. Uscreates worked with Associate Catherine Max and the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) to produce a guide for commissioners and providers of adult social care to develop responsive, personalised and environmentally sustainable services through community engagement. Download the guide here.
Previous work shows how exploring people’s experiences of where they live, the places and activities they enjoy, how they get around, what they like and what they would like to see changed, can open up creative discussions about the future of care – for themselves, for those they care for, and for friends and family. By building on these discussions, we have created a number of activities to help generate ideas about future care delivery, which are often simple and low-cost, and of benefit to the wider community.
Further information about the programme and a case study of Bristol’s approach to sustainable social care is available on SCIE’s website.
