Getting By with a Little Help: exploring alternative models of care and support at home


As older people, we know that social care is in urgent need of reform with fewer people getting the help they might need to remain independent at home.  A group of Elders Council members set out to explore alternative models of care and support.  Their findings are available in a report in the Reports section of the website.  Elders Council is now discussing the findings with Newcastle City Council and others in the hope that more innovative models of care will be offered in the city.
