Patrick Burke -- Can you live in my shoes

Patrick Burke was diagnosed with Relapsing Remitting Multiple Sclerosis in 1995 but believes his symptoms started in 1972. The disease turned into Secondary Progressive MS in about 1999/2000. He was forced to take medical retirement in 2012 and setup the website Aid4Disabled in the same year. The website www.aid4disabled.com is the story of his MS since retirement and it describes a wide range of items that are readily available for disabled people to improve their quality of life. He is a service user at universities where he gives talks to HCP students called ‘Life with a progressive physical disability’.

Catch Patrick Burke talk :-- 12:30 - 13:30pm

Multiple sclerosis is a disabling disease. It is incurable and different for everyone. I took medical retirement in 2012 and now I cannot walk unaided. I also have other disabilities, some visible and others not so visible; I try not to dwell on what I cannot do. Life for me is about living successfully with my disabilities and maintaining my quality of life.

Independence at Home

The Home Service Delivery Model brings together Reablement, Therapy (including Occupational Therapy and Sensory Rehabilitation), Assistive Technology (AT), Care and Repair and Housing Programmes and is an offer with less rigid demarcation between professionals, which enables services to be delivered holistically to meet people’s needs focused on prevention and early intervention and streamlining the customer pathway. The model of service delivery reduces existing duplication and multiple handoffs to drive efficiencies through demand management, which will contribute to the council’s strategic objective to reduce pressure on tier three specialist services. The model was developed to improve or maintain people’s independence, to support people to recover from illness or injury and help people relearn lost skills or abilities. The model is proactive and preventative.

Care and Repair

Care and Repair is Peterborough City Council’s in-house Home Improvement Agency. Its purpose is to provide assistance and support to disabled adults and children, elderly, frail and vulnerable residents to adapt, repair and maintain their homes to enable them to live safely and independently. A range of services, programmes and grants are provided to support residents with their physical housing needs and to support independent living such as Disabled Facility Grants, Repair Assistance Grants, Minor Aids and Adaptations and advice and practical support such as fund-raising, state benefit entitlement checks, referrals to heating and insulation schemes and relocation assistance.

Reablement

Peterborough City Council Reablement Service is a short-term support service, designed to help maintain independence at home or increase independence following a period of ill health and/or planned or unplanned hospital admission. The main focus is on improving people’s health and well-being, autonomy and confidence through providing support and encouragement to meet identified goals thereby reducing the need for ongoing care and support.
The team’s client group is those aged 18 upwards, who have been assessed as requiring short term-support to help them return to the level of independence they had before they became unwell, or to their personal new level of independence. The Reablement Service operates seven days a week from 07:00 to 22:00, 365 days a year. This is a free service for up to six weeks, however clients that require an ongoing package of care, will be financially assessed to see if they are required to contribute towards the ongoing cost.

Therapy Service

The therapy services provide assessment of daily function with people with sensory, physical and/or learning disability and their carers and assists with continuing rehabilitation /reablement of a person who has for example been newly registered with a sensory impairment, recovering from a period of ill health or injury or who has had a deterioration from an existing long term condition. The therapy service will establish if a person will benefit from a period of rehabilitation and agree a programme of activities to improve function with the person, teach adaptive techniques and identify and order equipment as part of the overall enablement of people they are working with. They provide the assessment of a client’s need for all complex Disabled Facilities Grants. Most of the therapy team is made up qualified occupational therapists and support staff but there is also a small team dedicated for the Sensory Support referrals for visual and hearing impairment.

Assistive Technology

Assistive Technology (AT) service identifies devices and equipment that can assist individuals and support their carers. Assistive Technology plays an important part in preventative measures to manage or minimise risk, including personal safety, home safety, falls prevention and medication management. It supports carers by providing reassurance, peace of mind and reducing stress so they can better manage the demands of their own home and work life alongside their caring role.
Assistive Technology enables people to live at home independently for longer by providing technologies that make their homes more safe and secure. In the context of increasing demographic pressures, there is a clear imperative to embrace up to date, cost effective and evidence based technology interventions that have demonstrable financial benefits. Telecare fits squarely into these categories. It is recognised that assistive technology is useful at home and can also be used in various care homes settings. As part of the Home Service Delivery Model Assistive Technology will become the default option, when assessing for packages of care. If Assistive Technology is not utilised in care packages the rationale for this approach will need to be evidenced.

Housing Programmes

The team are responsible for the monitoring of the capital programmes and the decision making process on the most suitable course of action for both grant funded adaptations and remedial repairs to address high risk poor property condition, including the feasibility of large scale, complex adaptations or alternative housing solutions to meet residents long term housing needs. The team also the deliver energy efficiency and fuel poverty projects both directly and with external partners. They are responsible for the delivery and quality monitoring of the Housing Related Support grants to external providers and developing and implementing the Housing Renewals Policy, Affordable Warmth Strategy and Home Energy Conservation Act (HECA) Progress Reports.
They are responsible for commissioning Private Sector Stock Condition Reports and maintaining a database of the energy efficiency of domestic dwellings. They act in a coordinating role for the provision of assistance to address property condition/hazards within the home to enable discharge from hospital/reablement/interim care by instructing Care & Repair to deliver discretionary disabled facility grants to vulnerable owner occupiers or accessing ASC ISP funding for social tenants.
