ASD00074 REACT Tender

Tender from Hampshire County Council in Basingstoke and Deane, East Hampshire, Eastleigh, Fareham, Gosport, Hart, Havant, New Forest, Rushmoor, Test Valley, Winchester areas.

The service will develop a reablement plan with the aim of maximising a person’s health, well being and independence, taking into account all the elements that are important to maintaining independence. These elements are many and varied and include use of assistive technology, aids and adaptations as well as those elements that maintain the dignity and self respect of the individual such as the skills, motivation and confidence to care for oneself and live a fulfilling and meaningful life.
This service aims to ensure that people are supported to live lives that are meaningful to them and ensure that they do not simply become passive recipients of services but active participants in their reablement programme resulting in longer term improvements to the quality of their lives. The tendered services will be divided into lots, based on the Hampshire Community Response Team areas.
