Community Care Centres
Community Care Centres have an essential role in the delivery of person-centred services for older people. Services within our centres help to maintain independence through rehabilitation and preventative services, but also substantially reduce the risk of admission or re-admission to acute hospitals and inappropriate use of residential care.
Our centres are dementia-friendly and inclusive, with Stirling University a key partner in the building design. Older people, their carers and local voluntary organisations have all contributed in developing the centre’s service model which will provide centre-based residential and outreach services as part of the integrated network of support to the local area.
Our first Community Care Centre in Staveley Centre opened in March 2010 and a second centre is opening in late Autumn 2012 in Swadlincote. Further centres are planned for other areas of the county in 2013 – 14.
