Posted in: 31st August 2010 by erica

Liverpool’s city council is considering a proposal to spend almost £1.5 million to help transform social care in the city. The council is looking to provide six new ‘Health and Well Being Super Centres’ in different neighbourhoods throughout the city.

Three of these super centres will be 24 hour facilities, providing a total of 85 intermediate care and crisis beds. The other three will be community ‘Hubs’, These will provide intensive Health and Social care support and advice on employment and housing.

The first two proposals are for Sedgemoor Care Home in Noris Green, which is set to become a 24 hour care centre, which will also focus on providing support for people with Dementia and their families. The second proposal is for Lime Cort Day Centre in Kensington, which will become the first of the community ‘Hubs’ and is open 12 hours per day, 7 days a week.

With these new proposals there will be a significant increase in the amount of people being supported raising from 1756 to 2606.
