Enhance Scheme

 

 

Our Enhance scheme is up and running! As one of fourteen organisations in the city of Leeds to be a delivery partner for the Enhance Programme, run by Leeds Older People’s Forum and Forum Central, we have the opportunity to focus on tailoring our services to the needs of those who are being discharged from the hospital. By linking Neighbourhood Teams with third-sector organisations, the aim is to increase capacity in both sectors to avoid fewer readmissions.

Our Support Team will focus on the first few days of transitioning back into the home, during which our “Home Welcome Packs” will be distributed to patients, any essential shopping will be ordered and delivered, the home is well heated and able to accommodate hazards prevention equipment, any medication taking is checked and necessary transport to appointments and for deliveries is arranged. Our welfare calls are a key part of this stage, and we have an open vacancy for a Project Administrator to join the Customer Service Team and carry these out. Following the first few days of transition, these calls will be gradually reduced depending on individual client need and we will liaise with our Neighbourhood Teams about providing longer-term support through referrals to other organisations for benefits applications and help with integrating back into their communities.

Care & Repair look forward to delivering on the outcomes of the project and gaining experience  from the project’s ‘test and learn’ approach.
