Community Care is an area of law that focuses on the provision of services by either the local authority or the primary care trust. It is focused on those in need of help and support and those who provide care for those in need of help and support. Most people at some stage have contact with the services offered by local authorities or primary care trusts from caring for the elderly to needing a form of treatment for themselves. Community care lawyers can help you where you think that you are not being listened to by a local authority or local care trust and if you are not getting the help and support you need. The concept of community care came about through the closure of the large old psychiatric hospitals and from this there has been a recognition of the needs for people to have help and support in the community.
Most people know someone who has had an operation and may need help and support to return home or maybe needs help to prepare for a change in their physical or mental state to come home. Often it can feel like things are happening all too quickly and people want help, support and guidance as to their rights and the obligations upon those who are supposed to deliver services. This can cover a large range of services from challenging how a Primary Care Trust decides to administer treatment through to the provision of care services at home.
It includes rehabilitation, the selling of a property to pay for care and meeting the needs of those who may be sick vulnerable pregnant elderly or those who lack status in the country and have no viable means of support.
