The Adult Services department provides information, advice, services and support to over 95,000 Hampshire residents every year. People may need social care or support during a crisis, because of their age, long term ill health or disability, or because they are caring for others.
Most of the support we give is to help people maintain their independence, so that they can continue to live in their own homes. In order to do this, we provide equipment to over 33,000 people. We also provide occupational therapy services to 5,500 people, support 2,400 adults with learning disabilities and provide support and services to over 1,000 people with visual and/or hearing impairment.
We run social care services from a range of locations around the county, including residential homes, day centres, community mental health teams, hospitals and resource units. In addition we run 10 nursing homes in partnership with Health.
Across the country Hampshire is leading the way as local Government embarks on a cultural revolution, Personalisation, where all public services are tailored to meet the needs of every individual in our communities. In Adult Social Care we are striving to ensure that service users can make real choices and decisions about their care, with our support, to enable them to live their life the way they want to.
