To ensure our residents remain living independently, our Independent Living Officer is here to provide holistic assessments that identify any areas of vulnerability and help resolve them before they have an adverse effect on a person's health or well-being.

A holistic assessment reviews a person's ability to complete a task as a whole rather than a specific element. For example, struggling to get in or out of the bath would require thought around access to the bathroom. Are stairs involved? Can the person use them safely?

Following the assessment, the client will be advised of any assistive technologies that could suit their individual needs and where they can be obtained.

To find out more information or to make a free appointment please contact us on 01789 260848 or independentliving@stratford-dc.gov.uk.

Our Independent Living officer is a member of the Healthcare and Assistive Technology Society and is committed to supporting, and abiding by, the Society Code of Professional Conduct.
