Lincolnshire County Council Day Care Contract Awarded
The Orders of St John Care Trust (OSJCT) has been selected as an Approved Provider for Day Care for Lincolnshire County Council. This is effective as of November 2018.
Caroline Dunagan, OSJCT Assistant Area Operations Director, comments: “Adult Day Care is well established in OSJCT Lincolnshire homes and we are delighted to be in a position to enhance this provision across a wider range of services. This will enable those to access care in rural areas where we are also being informed of a need for the service. We will have a greater emphasis in not only assisting people to stay at home longer but through assessment and reablement help people stay out of hospital.”
“The key aims will be to improve the quality of people’s lives and who have experienced frailty or recent illness. To help preserve independence and to improve overall wellbeing through socialisation. Carers often face the dilemma between maintaining their own health and wellbeing and supporting a loved one with their own needs. Day care can provide an outlet for carers to help them cope with care at home longer. Our revised service can now offer care by the hour to full days visits 7 days per week.”, continues Caroline.
Lincolnshire is the county The Orders of St John Care Trust originated in 1992 and where established local authority links as a reputable care provider exist and continue to develop. OSJCT is dedicated to elderly person-centred care and our colleagues are highly experienced in understanding how best to support and to help meet individual needs.
