Downham Ageing Well (ISB) Project

  • Developed through Downham Neighbourhood Management

  • Concerns

    - lack of lower level preventative services

  • Increasing thresholds to access statutory provisions

    Possible Solution

  • Develop a preventative model to help identify and support older people at the point at which they are vulnerable to entering or have already entered crisis.

  • Build on the existing local networks of providers and community workers to identify and refer older people at risk of entering crisis or at the early stage of crisis.

  • Provide resources to support older people in need to enable them to remain independent, mobile and socially active.


Key features l.jpg
Key Features

  • Prevention – intervening at an earlier point

  • Choice – enabling older people to decide and implement what they need to improve their quality of life

  • Consent – there is no requirement on people to engage with the project and they will decide when and how to engage (or not)


Key indicators of success l.jpg
Key Indicators of Success

How will we measure success?

  • Reducing the risk of dependency after crisis

  • Promoting independence by enabling older people to access more timely help and giving them access to a wider range of support services

  • Improved Quality of Life for individuals


How does it work l.jpg
How does it work

  • Anyone falling below FAC eligibility criteria is eligible (do not have to be assessed first)

  • Professionals will be able to log concerns about older people through the DORIS system

  • Community members, neighbours and older people will be able to refer by telephone/contact with project manager

  • Consent from individual must be given before any contact made

  • Individual intervention packages will be developed with older person and carers.

  • Interventions could include aids/adaptations, help with transport costs to access existing facilities
