18 April 2022New website helps residents stay independent in their homes for longer
A modern and vibrant website has been designed to help keep residents independent in their homes longer and to improve the customer experience when seeking information about adult social care.
The website is in what’s called the ‘Beta’ phase at the moment; this means it is live and can be tested to gather feedback from residents to improve it further.
Adult social care’s new website includes more online tools that residents can use, such as a financial calculator and a community directory of support services.
