Fairer Charging Policy
Care homes provide support, care and accommodation for elderly people unable to live independently.
Having a break is likely to help you cope with caring and give you time to recharge your batteries.
Advocacy is a way of protecting and asserting our rights. If someone speaks on your behalf, they are commonly known as an advocate.
If you need social care support from Doncaster Council, we think you should have choice and control over which services you access to meet your needs. Personal Budgets give you this choice and control.
A care act assessment is the process of working out what your needs are.
Shared Lives sees trained carers allow people with various disabilities, mental health issues and/or dementia to move in to their home and become part of their family life.
The Mental Capacity Act Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (MCA DoLS) were introduced in 2009 to provide legal protection for vulnerable people who are, or may become, deprived of their liberty in a hospital or care home.
How can we develop our workforce?
On 1 April 2015, changes to the law underpinning social care and support for adults came into effect.
