Making Individual Service Funds. Work for People with Dementia Living in Care Homes

Price £18.99
How it Works in Practice. By Helen Sanderson and Gill Bailey with Lisa Martin.

Making Individual Service Funds. Work for People with Dementia Living in Care Homes

Dispelling the myths about how personalisation works for people with dementia living in care homes, this book demonstrates how to introduce Individual Service Funds (ISFs), what works and what doesn't, and how to deal with difficulties and setbacks.

Individual Service Funds are one way that people living with dementia can have a personal budget. The authors explain how they went about introducing the principles of ISFs to people living with dementia in a large care home in Stockport, without using any additional funding. They describe the person-centred practices used and the involvement of the council, commissioners, staff and families. Through clear and detailed stories and examples, they demonstrate the dramatic approach to quality of life for people with dementia the approach can deliver. There is a strong emphasis on managerial and organisational issues, including getting staff 'on board', providing adequate support, budgeting, building effective partnerships and implementing change.

Providing helpful insights and examples for good practice, this book is essential reading for all those involved in providing personalised care for people with dementia living in care homes, including care staff, care home managers, local authority commissioners, service providers and policy makers.

A Practical Guide to Delivering Personalisation

Price £19.99

 A Practical Guide to Delivering Personalisation

Our new book, A Practical Guide to Delivering Personalisation by Helen Sanderson and Jaimee Lewis was launched on the 25th January 2012. Order here or by e-mailing claire@hsapress.co.uk and we can invoice you or your organisation.

 

Personalisation means people, their families and carers having choice and control over their support on a day-to-day basis. To deliver personalised services, professionals and carers need to do more than just hand over financial control: they need to know what is important to a person, the best way to support them, how they communicate and how they make decisions.

This book will show how to deliver personalisation through simple, effective and evidence-based person-centred practice that changes people's lives and helps them achieve the outcomes they want. It covers why person-centred practice is relevant to the personalisation agenda and what person-centred thinking and person-centred reviews are, introducing the tools that can help you carry them out. It also explores the relationship between person-centred plans and support plans, and how person-centred practice can be used in the journey of support through adulthood - from prevention or the management of long-term health conditions to reablement, recovery, support in old age and at the end of life. There is also a chapter on taking a person-centred approach to risk.


This is an essential guide for all staff in health and social care including service providers, managers, practitioners and students.

"The whole family has benefitted from the 'Getting a Life' programme as our son is now in control and knows where he wants to work. It is the pathway to an integrated and 'normal' life which means he can be an active member of his community and our society."

Person Centred Reviews in Adult Services

Price £1.00
Format: 209 x 295 mm, 56 pages, Perfect bound paperback. By Gill Bailey, Helen Sanderson, Charlotte Sweeney and Belinda Heaney

Person Centred Reviews in Adult Services

Person centred reviews were developed to transform the Year 9 transition in schools. As the Valuing People Support Team's national training programme was rolled out people quickly realised that this person centred approach to reviews could be equally powerful within adult services.

 

This report demonstrates that:

  • Person centred reviews can be lead to changes for individuals and services, and meet statutory requirements.
  • Person centred reviews can replace existing statutory reviews as they generally take the same amount of time and involve the same people.
  • Information from person centred reviews can provide important information to contribute to startegic commissioning.
  • People who use services, who were part of the study, preferred person centred reviews to traditional reviews.

Making it Personal - A providers journey from tradition to transformation

by Steve Scown & Helen Sanderson

Making it Personal - A providers journey from tradition to transformation

HSA's and Dimensions' award winning book, 'Making it Personal - A providers journey from tradition to transformation' .

What does it take to make change happen?

Big change? Since 2008, Dimensions has been grappling with the challenge of delivering personalised services. Leaving aside the debate about the future of residential care, they decided to transform their organisation to one that responds flexibly to individuals with a budget who will want bespoke support. Dimensions felt that if they did not consider and respond to the shift in power from the professionals to the customer, they would not survive.

Many providers are dealing with the same issues. But the question unanswered at most events for providers is "How do you do this?"

Dimensions has taken significant steps towards working that out. They started by taking an honest look at where they were, using the providers' selfassessment tool Progress for Providers. I then spent six days (over eight months) to take their leadership team on a real-life customer journey, from their first contact with someone through to on-going reviews. We were lucky enough to have the perspective of one person and her family - Jennie - to help Dimensions see in more detail exactly what they needed to change.
