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:
- people with frailty
