Here To Help

That's why we are here to help! It’s all about choice and control over your social care needs. Self-Directed support is a major change in the way people with social care needs are supported. It aims to improve the impact that care and support have on people’s lives by helping them choose and control what type of social care services they get, when and where they get them and who provides them.

How To Access SDS From Social Work Services

Initial Contact

You have to make the first contact with your Social Work Office - 121 Care At Home can help you with this in South Lanarkshire. If you are in hospital then a hospital social worker will visit you before discharge to assess your needs when you get home.

Assessment & Indicative SDS Budget

A Social Worker will visit you and make an assessment of your needs and whether these needs are eligible for support. The assessment will focus on things individuals can do well and those where they may need some help. Points will be allocated at each part of the assessment, depending on the need, and the total points are what assist in producing an indicative budget.

Formation Of The Support Plan

Social Workers have the responsibility of agreeing on an individual’s support plan that will enable people to achieve the agreed desirable outcomes. Some of the essential criteria that should be discussed in your support plan are listed below:

  • What is important to you

  • What are your specific desirable outcomes

  • How will you be supported

  • How will you use your individual budget

  • How will your support be managed

  • How will you stay in control

  • What is the action plan
     

Review The Support Plan

Social Work should agree with you on how often they will review the support plan. You or the social worker can request a review at any time if circumstances change and your support needs have altered.

There Are A Few Different Ways You Can Pay For Care:

Direct Payments

You receive a direct payment from the local council based on the agreed budget and you manage your own support plan. 121 Care at Home can deliver your support plan via this direct payment method.

 

Individual Service Fund

You chose who will deliver your support plan and the local council pay them directly and the care provider manages the service on your behalf. 121 Care at Home can deliver and manage your support plan, get paid directly by the council and you don’t have to do a thing.

 

Social Work Deliver Your Support Plan

Social Work arranges and manages your support plan and care needs, with their own local council employee’s or through a 3rd party approved provider.

 

A Combination Of The Previous Options
