Working with Cheshire West and Chester on new contract

A round-the-clock monitoring service for nearly 400 elderly and vulnerable people in the Cheshire area has a new provider.

Following a competitive tender process, Cheshire West and Chester Council has awarded its telecare contract to independent living specialist Welbeing.
The service improves people’s quality of life and helps them live in their own home for as long as possible by providing a 24-hour monitoring and response system.

Currently the service supports nearly 400 customers and the number of users is forecast to grow to 2,200 over the next three years.

Cheshire West and Chester Council’s Executive Member for Adult Social Care and Health, Councillor Brenda Dowding, said: “Ensuring that some of our most vulnerable residents can continue to live independently with the support and reassurance of a 24-hour monitoring and response system in their property has always been a high priority for the council.

“We are delighted to be working with Welbeing – an expert in the field – to make sure that the choice to stay in their own home is one that all of our residents can make without worry.”

Welbeing CEO, Steve Smith, said: “We are delighted to have been chosen by CW&C to provide and develop its high quality telecare service. We are looking forward to working together so that more people in the area benefit from this service which means they are able to live safely and independently in their own homes for longer.”

There are currently 65,000 people aged over 65 living in Cheshire West and Chester and in the next 15 years it is estimated this figure will rise to 92,000.
