Promoting Independence

The Promoting Independence service will assess your abilities and difficulties with managing activities of daily living. The aim of the service is to help you regain or learn new skills to live your everyday life and stay within your community. It will also give you time to regain confidence in your own abilities and understand what you need to do to stay safe and well.

The Promoting Independence team is made up of physiotherapists, occupational therapists, promoting independence assistants and domiciliary care managers who are supported by a team of office assistants working across the whole of the county.
