Holistic care and support aims to maximise choice and control and make positive changes in people’s lives, in terms of wellbeing, resilience, independence and connections to others. These factors are not only as important to people as physical health needs, they can also improve their ability to self-care. Holistic care has been shown to lead to more efficient use of resources.
Evidence shows that hospital is not the best place for people to recover from injury or illness when they can be cared for at home or in the community and that providing care outside of hospital supports patient empowerment and self-care.
Members of staff who are familiar with the community they work with are better able to adopt strengths-based approaches utilising assets within those communities.
