London Borough of Hillingdon: Taking preventative measures to manage demand on adult social care services

View all Demand management articles

London Borough of Hillingdon is using assistive technology and telecare to enable residents to remain in their homes for as long as possible and enjoy a better quality of life.

The telecare and reablement service achieved the financial savings target of £4,957,000 by March 2014. This is helping the council to manage the growing demand on adult social care services as it faces a projected increase in the number of residents aged over 80 by 13%. The council has created a fundamental shift in service provision away from institutionalised care, towards home-based support, risk prevention and early intervention.
