Supporting Derbyshire Residents to Remain Independent

Supporting Derbyshire Residents to Remain Independent

Derbyshire County Council has launched a new online information finder to help residents get support to remain living independently at home.

It provides free, impartial information and guidance for anyone over 18 – including older people, their families or carers, people with physical or learning disabilities, long-term or mental ill health or anyone having difficulties with day-to-day living.

People are asked to answer some simple questions about how they live including how they manage to get dressed, to cook or get out and about.

Using their answers, the online information finder points them to a wide range of services, activities, resources and guidance that they can access themselves to help make their lives easier.

As well as county council support, it also promotes a wide range of services which are available through the private, community and voluntary sector including befriending services, community transport, technology to stay safe at home and mental health and wellbeing support.

Find the information finder here.
