Report by Head of Older People Commissioning & Markets (CMDASPH4).


Homecare is a key service to help people to live well at home, and forms part of the Council’s care and support offer for people with an assessed eligible need. It is also purchased privately by people who fund their own care.


Reablement helps people learn or re-learn the skills necessary for daily living, which have been lost through deterioration in health and/or increased support needs. A focus on regaining physical ability is central, as is active reassessment. Reablement is a key part of the wider health & social care system, supporting hospital flow.


Oxfordshire is embarking on delivery of a new approach to meeting homecare and reablement need in the County: Living Well at Home. This will deliver a revised commercial offer, strategic partnerships with provider, and a focus on outcomes close to communities.  The report explains the background, progress and future plans for Oxfordshire's homecare and reablement approach.


The Committee is RECOMMENDED to endorse the approach to meeting homecare and reablement need in the County.



Recommendations Agreed.
