The role of the care navigator is to ‘signpost’ patients and their carers to access the support and services they may need to enable them to remain safe and independent at home. The service is particularly focussed on vulnerable older people who may have long-term health conditions. It is hoped that the support provided will also help to prevent unnecessary admissions to hospital. They are working across all practices in the area.
There are various things they can help with and these include:
Offering basic information and advice about various benefits and allowances and helping patients to access more in-depth help.
Helping patients to decide whether they would benefit from aids and adaptations in the home and if so, making the referral to adult services.
Helping patients to access support groups’ services such as befriending, dog walking, gardening, day centres and community social activities.
Visiting patients at home following a discharge from hospital to help with any issues.
Finding out whether patients are having any problems taking medications properly.
Once needs have been discussed and agreed, they will develop a ‘care plan’ of support and this will be copied to the GP and other professionals involved in care.
The office number for the Care Navigators is 023 8202 0363.
