Extra Care Contract – Harrow Council
Harrow Adult Social Care are expanding their Extra Care provision from the current one scheme to an additional 3 schemes over the next 2-3 years.
Harrow Adult Social Care (ASC) are expanding their Extra Care provision from the current one scheme to an additional 3 schemes over the next 2-3 years. This will increase the number of citizens living in an Extra Care scheme and requiring care and wellbeing support from 47 to approximately 170. The current contract for delivering the care support within the existing scheme (which has a total of 47 units) expires at the end of June 2021 and the first of the new schemes, which is under construction, will have 56 units and is due to open in June 2021. Both schemes are located in Central Harrow.
The new extra care schemes will expand on the current model recognising the increasing prevalence of dementia and complexity. Extra Care in Harrow is not a replacement for residential care but provides an alternative for citizens who wish to remain living independently for as long as possible with the appropriate care and support and Assistive Technology required to support them to do so and where a Care Act assessment and risk assessment has identified that the citizen is suitable. The care and support will be a strengths-based model of care philosophy that seeks to enable people to become more resilient and do things for themselves rather than having things done for them, including assisting people to re-learn skills where necessary.
