Minutes:

The item presented to the Committee gave details on the performance of the indicators in quarter 3.

 

Members noted that as at the end of 2020 both indicators were green. It was noted that a third of service users received direct payments, with 301 per 100,000 service users being permanently admitted to residential and nursing care homes with the majority of services users being over the age of 75. The Committee questioned whether direct payments were included in the financial criteria for Personal Independence Payment and Barbara agreed to check this. Officers explained the best way for residents to refer themselves or someone they know to the services is to go through the Havering website.

 

It was agreed that Members would provide feedback regarding the indicators set out in the report to the Chairman of the Committee.

Report attached

Minutes:

The report put before the Committee gave an update on how adult day centres coped during the COVID-19 lockdowns.

 

It was explained by officers that the centres adapted very well to the lockdowns even when staff were redeployed to other services. Members noted that the centres safely re-opened with staff tested twice weekly and a limited number of users allowed back into the centres. Members were pleased to note that online sessions had taken place during the lockdowns with which the users received well and enjoyed providing positive feedback. It was noted by members that no additional IT support was required from the centres users but IT provisions were available if they were needed. Officers explained that around 10% of the users were shielders and centres had produced detailed plans for re-opening centres in line with the central government’s COVID-19 roadmap.
