Lincolnshire wellbeing service looks to the future

Lincolnshire residents are being asked for their views about a successful service that helps people stay independent at home.

Lincolnshire County Council EMN-150104-103809001

The County Council is continuously looking to improve the Wellbeing Service, which supported over 5,000 people last year alone in Lincolnshire.

If you have a view on the service you can complete a survey about any improvements you’d like to see made- you don’t have to have used the service before to take part.

Councillor Patricia Bradwell, Executive Councillor for Adult Care and Health at the county council, said: “The Wellbeing Service was a new service when it was set up but has had real success in keeping people out of hospital and helping with a range of issues that could affect health and wellbeing.

“We are currently looking at how we can make the service even better going forward. We know it’s a valued service, and we’d like to know residents’ views about what’s most important to them.”

The Wellbeing Service offers short-term support to adults to help them live independently, as well as aids and adaptations for people’s homes and a monitoring and response service. The vast majority of the support is free to the user.
