The Somerset House of Care is a collaborative approach to addressing the needs of people with long term conditions which has at its heart personalised care and support planning.
This way of working can transform the lives of people with long term conditions through:
- a better understanding of their goals and what matters to them
- empowering them to better manage their condition
- supporting them with appropriate joined-up services, and
- improving their quality of life
It is about the whole health economy - individuals, communities, health and social care services, the voluntary sector and others - working together to manage the rise in the number of people with multiple long term conditions and enhance their experiences.
We have put together a collection of resources, such as blogs, web pages, documents, videos, articles, research, templates, advice and guidance for you to use in the training of staff, in practice meetings, and as tools/aids to support you in your work and so on.
