Service To Support Local Community At Home
In Winchester its has been agreed that Avalon House on Chesil Street will be repurposed and used by the Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust. This organisation provides health services to the community, and this includes health visitors and district nurses. However the main purpose of the Avalon House building is yet to be decided.
Although the repurposing of this building has had the full backing of the councillors, some members of the general public have raised some concerns. For example some of the local residents feel that they may experience some disruptions may be experienced as a result of taxi’s pulling up and waiting for people. A councillor has also raised the point that the building is in a conservative area, and the NHS may put up a variety of signs which could lead to potential problems.
The Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust provide a wide variety of services including: Mental Health services, community health services, learning disability services, and Social care services. They can provide care and support within the community that will help you to maintain good health and well-being. This can be done by providing you with community nurses or support. There are a wide range of services that are run within in the community, and these include: health and well-being services, mental health services, community dentistry, and minor injury units.
The Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust’s main aim is to ensure that the general populations health and wellbeing are as good as they can possibly be. This is why they run a number of services targeted specifically for maintaining good health and well-being. These services include: stopping smoking services, advice on alcohol and drug abuse, older people’s health services (including falls advice), and Dental Health services.
These services can be particularly beneficial to older people because they may not be able to get out and about as easily as others within the local community. This is because it can help them to get the help and support that they need to maintain good health and wellbeing, and to potentially maintain some level of independence for longer.
Age UK also offer information and advice services to assist those who are over the age of 55 with a variety of different areas of daily living, including: pensions, family and personal matters, aids and adaptations, and housing and property. These services allow you to gain valuable advice on how to manage and understand a variety of factors and decisions from daily life.
