Swansea Council Logo 2017Swansea Council want you to have your say on their proposal to change the way they deliver day services and residential care for older people.

Swansea Council want to continue to support everyone as well as they possibly can, while dealing with some challenges that have become difficult to manage in recent years.

As people are living longer there are a lot more people needing support than there used to be. Also, there are more people with dementia and other difficulties that they call "complex needs" that need specialised support.

Day Services for Older People: Have Your Say.

Currently they provide day services across a number of locations across Swansea. At the same time, people are asking for support to remain in their own homes for longer, and to live busy, active lives. Day services may not be the best way to help that happen for everyone, and they have developed other projects that are working really well.

Despite the council having much less money than it used to, they are committed to continuing to provide the best day services possible. To make sure they are providing the best services in the best way for everyone, they are now asking for views on their proposed changes to Day Services for Older People.

The consultation will run until the 23rd July.


Residential Care for Older People: Have Your Say.

Currently, they provide residential care, as well as support to families who care for relatives (known as respite care) and intensive social services support to help people remain in or return to their own homes (known as reablement). At the same time, people are asking for support to remain in their own homes for longer, and to live busy, active lives. Carers are also looking for more respite to help give them breaks from caring for loved ones, so they can look after them better and for longer.

Despite the Council having much less money than it used to, they are committed to continuing to provide the best care possible. This means they must ensure that resources are focused on those most in need, or are used to provide the care others are unable to provide.

Looking to the future, if they implement their proposed changes, they estimate that they will have 42 more beds than we need in Council run Residential Care Homes so they are now asking for views on their proposed changes to Residential Care for Older People.
