Angus Care Model
Optimising and joining up health and social care services is critical to realising the ambitions of health and social care integration. A package of assessment, treatment, rehabilitation and support in the community, along with help for carers, can better serve the needs of people and help deliver more effective deployment of the resources available to the Integration Joint Board which oversees the Angus Health and Social Care Partnership. People must become central to decisions about their own needs, outcomes and support.
Angus Health and Social Care Partnership is focused on delivering an approach to integration that has a much greater emphasis on prevention, early intervention, self-management and supporting people in their own homes and communities with less unnecessary use of hospitals and care homes. Information to date suggests we are already doing well in with more than 90% of older people’s care being delivered in the community but there is still more to do for the whole adult population.
