Older Person Floating Support Service This service provides both long-term and short-term support to develop or maintain independence within the community and in maintaining their accommodation. The service enables older people to live independently and reduce the number of people entering institutional care following crisis health episodes. Service users are supported to manage their home and encourage a healthy lifestyle, including maximised social interaction through planned community and social activities. The service offers individually-focused support, recognising that each user will have different requirements. It is culturally sensitive to meet the needs of people from Black & Minority Ethnic communities.
