Living Well in Communities

We work with health and social care organisations to support people to live well at home, or a homely setting, in their community for longer.

 

The Improvement Hub’s (ihub) Living Well in Communities (LWIC) Portfolio supports health and social care organisations by:

  • Finding opportunities for improvement
  • Identifying people before a crisis
  • Planning for the future
  • Implementing preventative models of care
  • Building local capacity and capability

The work of LWIC helps:

  • People who manage care services
  • People who deliver care
  • People who are supported by care

Living Well in Communities focuses on four key population groups:

  1. people with frailty
  2. people with palliative care needs
  3. people living with multiple long-term conditions, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
  4. people with chaotic lifestyles

Living Well in Communities has a range of current and completed projects grouped under these themes:

  • Finding opportunities for improvement - Pathways for High Resource Individuals
  • Identifying People before a crisis - Frailty and Falls in the Community, Palliative Care
  • Planning for the future - Anticipatory Care Planning, Palliative Care
  • Implementing preventative models of care - Frailty and Falls in the Community, Palliative Care, Neighbourhood Care, Intermediate Care
  • Building local capacity and capability - all of our programmes, and our forthcoming regional work.

We are currently shifting to regional working with health and social care partnerships in the North, East and West of Scotland.
