Here to Help Havering
We are working in partnership with Here to Help. Some of the services Here to Help offer are:
- advice on money matters
- help to improve your health
- providing links to healthcare and othere services
- promoting independence
If you need more than just advice and information then we can have a more detailed conversation with you. This is where we talk to you about the things that are working well and what gives your life meaning and purpose, your day to day routines and the support available around you.
We will work with you to see how your needs can be supported ensuring that you are safe and can remain as independent as possible.
You can have a friend or family member with you if you like.
Sometimes you may need to pay to get the help you need, but if this is a problem we can carry out a financial assessment to see if we can help pay for your support.
If we provide on-going support to help you manage more independently we normally review the care you receive from time to time to see how it’s going and make sure that the support is at the right level for you. This could mean revising the arrangements to make them better suited if your needs change.
If you need an assessment the first step is to contact us as above.
We can also have similar conversations with Carers to understand how the caring role impacts your life and if we can help to support you in your caring role. You can find out more on our Carers page.
