The Wellbeing Service

The Wellbeing Service is designed to promote confidence in living independently. If you, or someone you know, is aged 18+ and needs support, get in touch to see how we can help.

Following assessment, the range of services we can offer are handholding support (generic support), simple aids to daily living, minor adaptations, Telecare, 24-hour responder, monitoring of Telecare alarm and signposting.

Principles of the Lincolnshire Wellbeing Service

The Wellbeing Service should:

  • be preventative. It should enhance wellbeing, and reduce or delay escalation to statutory support services.
  • improve accessibility to support services when they are needed.
  • deliver services that are tailored and fit for purpose.
  • allow equal opportunity regardless of location within Lincolnshire.

Generic support

A brief period of support to achieve person centred outcomes, it is preventative by nature and will focus on promoting independence.
Some of the things we may be able to support you with include:

  • exploring the options available to you
  • access to befriending services
  • access to activities provided by local clubs, voluntary or community organisations
  • secure and maintain appropriate housing
  • home management and lifestyle skills
  • managing your finances and benefit claims.
