Delivering our 2011 Manifesto (Adult Services)

Posted by davidburbage on April 12, 2015

BoynGrove

Here I am with Dee Quick at the Boyn Grove Resource Centre in Maidenhead. Not only completed under our administration, and expanded, the centre contains a new library!

Support development of extra care housing to provide solutions for residents with adult social care needs

We’ve improved the facilities at Lady Elizabeth House and more extra care units are in the pipeline.

Preserve respite and day care facilities

Respite policy strengthened, and facilities for day care have been preserved at Lady Elizabeth House

Improve IT use and capabilities for older residents

Facilities introduced at Boyn Grove and Spencer Denney centre

Use new public health responsibilities to improve health outcomes for the borough

We now have significant public health responsibilities; we’re taking action with health checks, smoking cessation campaigns and bowel screening

Fight for local health facilities to be maintained and enhanced across the borough, not cut, removed or centralised to other places

Massive campaigns fought to preserve the local NHS offer at Heatherwood hospital, and also at St Marks in Maidenhead.

Support Ways Into Work in helping residents with learning difficulties to access employment opportunities

More disabled people being helped into jobs and training, also supported at the Rendezvous cafe at the Town Hall

Continue to support SMILE

SMILE support has continued across the Leisure services transfer to Parkwood
