jdee consultancy have been successful in their bid to design and test a model of Self Directed Support for people with long term conditions living in their own homes.

The expected outcomes are to

Allow people who use services to make informed choices in the management of their condition and in the meeting of their care needs in an effective manner
For workers to communicate effectively to enable people who use services to develop and gain confidence in their self directed care skills
Enable and support people and care workers in particular to develop skills in self directed care
Enable and support people to participate in service planning and to access wider support networks

The Self Directed Support Model will be ‘tested’ using the front line workers in three independent homecare organisations and the local authority’s intake and assessment teams.

The independent evaluation is due to be reported in early 2009
