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.
