Become and remain independent

Building a Devon where people care for and support each other to become and remain independent

Watch the video - Become and remain independent: what matters to you?

We want to help people to live their lives in an independent way that makes sense to them, and for health and care services to understand what living a good, independent life looks and feels like.

We are doing this by gaining a deeper understanding of health and social care in Devon and what using these services really feels like through the experiences of residents and professional staff.

What we are doing

In Northern Devon, community health and social care colleagues are learning about the how the current system works for the people who use our services and the staff who work in the services. They are also learning and developing practice to understand what matters to people so we can support people in the right way and at the right time.
