Social care services at The Lime and Sedgemoor in spotlight

The next phase of a campaign to promote Liverpool City Council’s social care services is getting underway.

The Care to Know Campaign is designed to raise the profile of adult social services and public health services to help people to stay independent for as long as possible and improve their wellbeing.

Now two short films have been produced featuring the Lime Hub in Kensington and Sedgemoor Dementia Support Centre in Norris Green.

Sedgemoor Dementia Support Centre provides a day service for individual’s including facilities such as a 4D interactive suite and a sensory garden.

The Lime provides day services for people who have a learning or physical disability with facilities such as a hydrotherapy pool and 4D sensory room, as well as a community cafe.

Each of the films showcases the innovative features of both services and through interviews with the staff, service users and carers, highlights the benefits it has brought to their lives.

Cabinet member for adult social care and health, Councillor Roz Gladden, said: “We want to help people understand what services are available and how they can access them.

“We understand that health and social care can also be seen as a maze, with patients and carers finding it difficult to find credible and reliable information and people can be reluctant to ask for help.

“By raising awareness of what services are on offer for individuals with low and moderate needs that can help people to keep their independence and self-manage their health now, will help to prevent people from needing more critical care in the future, which is really important due to the 58 percent cut in council funding from Central Government.”

The films can be found here and will also be aired on Liverpool TV station Bay TV (Freeview channel 8 and Virgin channel 159) for the next six weeks. The campaign website also has further information on the range of care and support services funded by Liverpool Council, Adult Social Services and Public Health.
