Forestcare

At Forestcare we help people to stay safe and retain independence in their own homes. Part of Bracknell Forest Council, we are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, we are accredited with TSA and will be registered with CQC. As Forestcare offer a 24/7 service we are able to offer care services when other care providers finish. The purpose of the care provided by Forestcare is to support individuals who choose to remain in the comfort and security of their own homes and to help them live as independently as possible by supporting them in emergency situations. We envisage that our out of hour’s service will help to reduce unnecessary hospital admission and delayed discharges. We respond promptly and we keep our customers updated on the progress of their requests.

1. Action Plan

1. The National Dementia Declaration lists seven outcomes that the DAA are seeking to achieve for people with dementia and their carers. How would you describe your organisation’s role in delivering better outcomes for people with dementia and their carers?

Forestcare assist individuals with remaining as independent as possible. We offer assistive technology to enable people to remain in their own homes and to continue to undertake everyday tasks such as going  for a walk via out technologies. We offer emergency care calls to individuals too which offers re-assurance to themselves and their families.

2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?

Challenges to delivering outcomes include awareness of the products that are available to individuals.
