About 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 a little 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.

To make a referral to the Wellbeing Service, call 01522 782140.

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.

Brief overview of the Wellbeing Service

Accessing the service and assessment

Your assessor will work with you to identify the intended outcomes and how they may be achieved. The assessment may result in receiving a service directly from the Wellbeing Service, or it may be that we support you to access specialised services.

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.

Aids and adaptations for your home

We can supply and install low cost equipment, for example kettle tippers, key safes and raised toilet seats, and we can supply and fit equipment which requires minor adaptations to your home, including grab rails, hand rails, second banister rail and alterations to steps.

Telecare and Wellbeing Response services

We can supply and install Telecare equipment which is linked to a 24 hour monitoring centre. Telecare can help you to live independently at home safe in the knowledge that help can be summoned quickly when needed. Our Wellbeing Responders can be alerted through our Telecare Service and offer a 24 hour 7 day a week service, attending a person’s property for non-medical emergencies.
