Changes agreed for homecare services

Home care services are changing in Sheffield to provide services that better suit the needs of those who receive care in their own home. The services will focus on the best way that care can be delivered for every individual. People receiving care will have more choice about how their services are delivered and to talk about the things that really matter to them. We know that people receiving care want fewer carers and instead ones who they know and trust, and more control over their care. Carers will have more flexibility and control over how they deliver their services too.
