Daytime opportunities for older adults with advanced care needs based in Eildon -2024

Closed 25 Feb 2024

Opened 25 Jan 2024

Overview

The Scottish Borders Health and Social Care Partnership is currently reviewing the social and respite opportunities that are available to older adults and those with advanced care needs.

Engagement recently carried out by the Partnership in Teviot and Liddesdale showed that there are many social opportunities available such as lunch clubs, walking groups, men’s sheds etc. but that many of these activities were not able to support those with personal care needs. The engagement also showed that there were barriers to taking part in these activities such as the requirement for transport or personal care.

The Health and Social Care Partnership aims to ensure that adults with advanced care needs have the opportunity to take part in social activities with others in a similar situation. In turn, this may allow family members/Unpaid Carers to have a break from caring responsibilities.

The Scottish Borders Health and Social Care Partnership is now reviewing activities and services in the Eildon Locality. The review aims to identify any gaps in provision and, where gaps are found, identify and put in place a suitable solution.

Why your views matter

It will help us to know what activities you or the person you are representing (if you are completing the survey on behalf of someone) currently use and what makes it hard for you or them to take part in activities. 

It will also help us to know what kind of activities/service you or the person you are representing would like to participate in.
