Adult Social Care
Cheshire West and Chester Council is committed to supporting residents to remain as independent as possible and to live in their own homes for as long as they can safely do so. We work closely with a broad range of organisations in the independent, voluntary and community sectors, to ensure that support services are joined-up, in order to reduce any duplication or confusion for service users and their families.
Our online directory, which can be viewed here, provides Cheshire West and Chester residents with details of activities and services which are locally available to meet their social care needs. These might include extra care housing, care at home and services for people who need more intensive 24-hour support in a care home setting.
We want to make sure that individuals and their families get timely information and advice when they need it, have a range of high-quality support providers to choose from, and that the process of accessing support services is as simple and straightforward as possible. We aim to ensure that people receive the right level of support, in the right setting which will aid recovery and prevent support needs from increasing. To do this, we will have quality conversations that focus on what individuals can do in order to find creative, sustainable solutions that enable people to live the best lives possible and take a more active role in managing their own support needs. Voluntary and community services will also work closer together to develop a greater range of solutions, including support groups and the use of new technology which will help residents to access services digitally.
