'Managing Better' - Three years of making a difference

Care and Repair Cymru's 'Managing Better' service has been running for three years. A new report summarises the benefits that the project has achieved in working to support older people who have sensory loss.

The service, which is delivered in partnership with RNIB Cymru and Action on Hearing Loss Cymru, is provided by 13 Care & Repair Agencies and 13 Managing Better Caseworkers who work with Health and Social Care locally (including rehabilitation officers and ECLOs), to identify vulnerable, frail older people in need of help to achieve a safe, healthy home environment before they reach a crisis point and enter the statutory system. The support offered includes healthy homes assessments; adaptations and repairs in the homes of clients; welfare benefits checks; and new and improved mechanisms of referral to local government and NHS services, such as Audiology and Opthamology Departments.
