Worcestershire County Council is committed to supporting its residents to live healthy and independent lives in their community.
Our approach is to offer short-term intensive support to enable individuals to learn how to live their lives as independently as they can and support them to regain independence during the period of support. We will continue to focus on what people can do and build on these skills. We will make sure people receive the right support at the right time to help them live independently at home for as long as possible.
This is part of a broader approach to ensure Worcestershire residents are healthier, live longer, have better quality of life and remain independent for as long as possible.
