Personalisation

Personalisation

‘Personalisation’ is a term used to describe the ability to tailor a range of support services to meet an individual’s specific care needs and it is at the heart of the Government’s drive to transform social care.

Personalisation means that every person who receives support, whether from statutory services or funded by themselves, will be empowered to shape their own lives and the services they receive in all care settings, including their own homes.

Independent living is one of the goals of personalisation. It does not mean living on your own or doing things alone, but rather it means having choice and control over the assistance and/or equipment needed to go about your daily life.
