II.1.4)Short description:

Rutland County Council intends to commission outcome based Homecare from to meet the health and social care needs of Service Users and Carers. Currently the Council commissions over 62,000 hours of homecare per year to approximately 79 people. This figure is set to rise given the ageing population locally, the increase in people living with more complex conditions and the increase in people continuing to live at home. The Council requires a wide range of flexible support services for people with varying levels of need including non-complex health care tasks and end of life care. The procurement proposes a shift from commissioning for ‘time and task’ to an outcome-focussed service which supports people to maximise their independence. The specification sets out three key aims to:

(i) support individuals to regain and retain their independence;

(ii) reduce the need for on-going homecare services through reablement and enablement; and

(iii) support Service Users to exercise choice and control.
