NEW GUIDANCE ISSUED BY DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND SOCIAL CARE


Department of Health and Social Care has issued new guidance to councils and care providers as the Government works to delay the spread of COVID-19.

The guidance covers situations found across residential care settings and where care is delivered in people’s own homes. It is designed to ensure people who receive care are well supported.

Resident and carer in care home

Guidance on residential care provision

This guidance is aimed at local authorities, clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) and registered providers of accommodation for people who need personal or nursing care. This includes registered residential care and nursing homes for people with learning disabilities, mental health and/or other disabilities. Access the guidance here.

Supported living

Guidance for supported living provision

This is aimed at local authorities, clinical commissioning groups (CCGs), community health services and providers of care and support delivered within supported living environments (people in their own homes), including for people with mental health conditions, learning disabilities or autistic adults. Access the guidance here.
There is guidance issued by Public Health England (PHE) for individuals, families and informal care workers of what to do to maintain home care support safely, if they are advised to isolate themselves at home.

Home care

Guidance on home care provision

This guidance is aimed at local authorities, clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) and registered providers, who support and deliver care to people in their own homes, including community health services.
It takes account of latest government advice on self-isolation, set out in guidance issued by Public Health England. There will also be separate guidance setting out arrangements for people in prisons.
Provision of care and support in people’s home is a high priority service, in that most care and support cannot be deferred to another day without putting individuals at risk of harm. It is therefore vital that these services are prioritised and this guidance will support you in doing this. This guidance will be regularly updated. Access the guidance here.
