Healthwatch Shropshire are starting off the New Year with hot topic that will interest many of our members! Domiciliary Care.

What are your experiences of home care services in Shropshire? Jane Randell-Smith CEO of Healthwatch Shropshire said”  The number of people, especially older individuals, being helped and supported to live independently is increasing & in Shropshire projections suggest that just over a third of county residents will be 65 or over by 2033. We are looking at domiciliary care services. We want to hear from people who may use them, or indeed have been unable to get the support they needed. But we also want to hear from carer’s and professionals to hear their experiences” 

Do you feel your care needs are being met? Are you visited by the same care worker on a regular basis? Do you have a choice on who cares for you? Do you feel involved in your care plan? Have you a good experience to share, please share it. Unfortunately some of you may not have had or are having a good experience, it is important you share that too. 

To share your experience contact Healthwatch by calling 01743 237884 or email                               

The more comments received the more influence Healthwatch Shropshire has to improve services for local people.
