Community care at home fund
THE HIGHLAND Council has endorsed a new Community Care at Home Development Fund.
A fund of £10,000 has been made available to support the development which has been described as ‘an innovative approach to developing community based care at home services.’
The council, and subsequently the NHS, has experienced difficulty in recruiting people in the past to provide care at home services in rural communities.
It hopes this new model will help provide home care services to remote areas of the Highlands.
