Long Term Care and Support

Long term care needs of vulnerable and eligible older people can be met in a variety of settings. This needs assessment focuses on the social care needs of older people that are eligible (i.e. met Fair Access to Care Services eligibility-FACS criteria at the level of critical and substantial) and such needs are met through provision of residential, nursing placements and high cost packages of care at home. Universal social and health needs of all other older people in Lewisham will not be included in this needs assessment
