The People We Will Help
All people who live permanently in care homes (both residential and nursing) are eligible for the service. This includes people living in residential and nursing homes that deliver specialist support (such as specialist learning disability and dementia units) but does not include people living in secure units for mental health
Supported living environments and extra care facilities are not currently in scope for this service but may be covered by other services to be delivered through the network contract DES, including anticipatory care, medications reviews and personalised care.
