Adult Social Care in Wirral is part of the NHS. We are an integrated health and care provider which means different health and care professionals work closely together to support individuals to achieve their personal goals, making sure the right advice and support is provided at the right time from the right people. These include:
- Social Workers
- Social Care Practitioners
- Occupational Therapists
- Reablement Officers
Our teams work closely with colleagues in Children’s Services to ensure appropriate arrangements are in place as individuals transfer into Adult Services.
Any adult, aged 18 or over, who is finding it difficult to perform some day-to-day tasks, may qualify for care and support. They might be struggling as a result of age, illness, disability or any significant change in their life.
The aim of adult social care services is to support people to stay independent for as long as possible and maintain their wellbeing. This may include accessing support from a range of community, voluntary and advocacy services.
The team look after the Care Act 2014 Assessments for individuals and carers who may be in need of care and support. They provide advice and information and also investigate adult safeguarding concerns to ensure individuals are kept safe.
Adult Social Care can be contacted through the Central Advice and Duty Team (CADT). (Link to service page)
