So Important In Social Care Practice? What Is Social Care? Social care can be defined as a wide range of services designed to support people to maintain their independence, enable them to play a fuller part in society and protect them in vulnerable situations. (DoH, 2006: 1.29) References Who is age concern in partnership with?
- Mental health departments
- Social workers
- Doctors and Nurses
- Age UK
- Home Care
- Service users and families Population - 16,385
Residents aged 60-75 = 1,856
Residents aged 75+ = 944
Higher percentage of men aged 60-70 than women (Unlike 2001)
Aged 70+ more women
12.5% (2052 people) were of retirement age Miles Platting and Newton Heath and Newton Heath Population - 13,906
Residents aged 60-75 = 1,823
Residents aged 75+ = 962
Consistently higher percentage of women than men aged 60-85+ 2011 2001 "It means having
company and being able to do things. It
keeps me active and
means not sitting
alone doing nothing" "the most rapidly growing age group comprises those aged 80 and above, and in some countries people over the age of 100 are leading the way in the rate of population growth by age" (Butler, 1997) In these times of austerity many health and social care services are being cut.

Caroline Abrahams, of Age UK said: “These cuts will inevitably affect the range and quality of care available for England’s frailest and poorest care home residents." (Bingham, 2012)

However, the day centre said their future looked good, the cuts do not affect them because they are run separately from Age UK. They are hoping to expand their centre

"It is part of a policy vision in which guaranteeing of human rights will enable the expanding older population to remain healthy (thus reducing the burden on health and social care systems) and to stay in employment longer (thus reducing pension costs)" (Stenner, McFarquhar & Bowling, 2011:467)

What Is Old? Old age is a contested term, everyone considers old age as different. Typically in the UK, old age would be considered as 65+, pension age. The Population The population in England and Wales has risen by 7% from 2001 to 2010. This creates more demand for health and social care services which are already stretched and suffering government cuts. Personalization is the tailoring of services more closely to their users. (Needham, 2010)

"The overall vision is that the state should empower citizens to shape their own lives and the services the receive." (HM Government Policy Review, 2007) Manchester Home Finder. (no date) "We want communities to be much more involved in the decisions taken by local authorities and the NHS" (DoH, 2012:23)
Promoting people’s well being and independence is one point the government make- encouraging better opportunities for individuals, families and communities to support each other and to plan ahead for their care. (DofH, 2012)

Changing the law will put the service users needs at the centre of care, it will ensure local authorities work for the well being of everyone, not just a few. (DoH, 2012) Partnership working enables knowledge, experience and good practice to come together

"Partnership is an aspiration to create cooperative relationships between personnel so that they pursue similar objectives in coordinated ways." (Payne, 2009)

Partnerships can include central and local governments, private and public voluntary sectors, communities, service providers, researchers and most importantly service users.

Mitchell (2012) suggested that investing is the way forward to support elderly people live ordinary lives in the community. It is not a social care issue alone and should not just be dealt by social care departments, thus councils need to recognise partnerships as important.

"We will continue to work with our partners across the care and support system in the years beyond 2015 to embed the changes that we have set out. In particular, we will work with local authorities, care providers, carers and people who use services." (DoH, 2012:65)

Partnership refers to practice where users participate with professionals in deciding on a course of action. Research found users believed that professionals knew best, but identified that effective partnerships were those resulting from a negotiation between those with personal experience and those with professional expertise. (SCIE, no date:online)

“Working in partnership with other organisations and with people who use services and carers is crucial to the provision of seamless social care services" (SCIE, 2012) Our organisation, Age UK, promotes well being by... (ONS, 2012) NEF (2011): 5 ways of well-being
Be active
Take notice
Keep learning
Give Miles Platting is an urban area in Manchester and deprived: Social Policy Well-being The day centre
-Provides a hot meal
they may not otherwise receive
-Play games and keep their brains active
-(Relate this to NEF & well-being) "We want communities to be much more involved in the decisions taken by local authorities and the NHS." (DofH 2012:22) Community Within social care and social policy there's a number of distinctive meanings of community to be aware of.
Social and political debate presumes that if community was present social care would be less needed. (Payne, 2009) Why? Immigration
Development of care Active ageing is meaningful for older people. (Stenner, McFarquhar & Bowling, 2011)
Doreen (62 years) states that going out and traveling would worry her is she was old and infirm because she like to go out and be energised by different people. (Ziegler & Schwanen, 2011)
"A physically active lifestyle, and specifically an exercise regime that challenges both the muscular and cardiorespiratory systems, offers older adults functional and physiological protection." (Henwood, Tuckett, Edelstein, et al., 2011:1344) The ageing population is now closely linked with well being "The neighbourhood is ranked as one of the most deprived areas in the country according to the index of multiple deprivation and has historically suffered from problems including crime and vandalism, low education attainment standards and high unemployment." (Renaissance Consortium, no date) "Care and support is something that affects us all: 76 per cent of older people will need care and support at some point in later life." (DoH, 2012:13) "Supporting active and inclusive communities, and encouraging people to use their skills and talents to build new friendships and connections, is central to our vision for care and support. Strong communities can improve our health and wellbeing, and reduce health inequalities." (DoH, 2012:22) The government recognises the ageing population.
Policies are changing to support personalisation and promote well being and community support These should be encouraged within the older people to improve well being and mental health (ONS, 2012)
