Defining excellence: excellence in domiciliary care

Author:
SOCIAL CARE INSTITUTE FOR EXCELLENCE
Publisher:
Social Care Institute for Excellence
Publication year:
2012
Place of publication:

Service users get together with a social care academic and a leader in the home care sector to discuss how excellence can be achieved in domiciliary care.  We see examples of excellence in support offered to older people, people with learning disabilities and people with physical disabilities in their own homes.  Much of the focus is on the relationship between staff members and the people they support because getting that right is fundamental to excellent care. This film has now been revised and is available under the new title 'Quality in social care: achieving excellence in home care'.

Author:
SERVICE FOR ALL CONFERENCE

Pagination:
42p.
Place of publication:
Edinburgh

The conference aimed to bring people together to exchange information, examples of good practice and ideas about making NHS services more accessible. The main elements of the event were to: understand access from the perspective of people with disabilities, people with mental health problems and older people, what helps and what are the main problems?; identify good practice in Scotland and start a database of good practice; share ideas around practical solutions and on ways to get advice and help from others; and inform ongoing development of policies and advice for the Scottish Executive and the NHS in Scotland on how the NHS and people who use services can work together to improve access. Under the Disability Discrimination Act 1995, the NHS and other service providers have to think actively about how to make services accessible. This legislation is important but making this happen is not just about following legislation. It is about people sharing a vision of what a service for all looks like, of imagining better and working together to make it real.
