High quality coordinated care

Holistic care and support aims to boost choice and control. It also aims to make positive changes in people’s lives, in terms of wellbeing, resilience and connections to others. These factors are vital to people as physical health needs. They can also improve their ability to self-care. Holistic care has been shown to lead to better use of resources.

There's proof that hospital is not the best place for people to recover from injury or illness. They can be cared for at home or in the community. It also shows giving care outside of hospital supports independence and self-care.

Members of staff who are familiar with the community they work with are better able to adopt strengths-based approaches. They can utilise assets within those communities.
