Independent Living Centre to open at Telford Centre
We are pleased to confirm that Telford's Independent Living Centre will open here at Telford Centre, for pre booked appointments on 12th April and to the wider community on 26th April, enabling people with care and support needs to live well and as independently as possible.
The Independent Living Centre (ILC) is funded by Telford & Wrekin Council in partnership with the CVS and will offer both preventative and responsive support to individuals to enable them, their families and their family carers to live well and safe in their community.
The ILC will provide support around daily living and it offers wide ranging information, advice and signposting to address the needs of residents which enables individuals and their family to make decisions to enhance life choices.
A purpose built environment has enabled the centre to provide a ‘showhome’ with built in features to both physically and digitally promote independent living and to reduce costs of care and support needs using modern technology and Assistive Equipment solutions.
On-site TEC (Technology Enabled Care), Sensory & Visual Impairment and Occupational Therapy equipment enables people to ‘try before they buy’ to find the solutions they need to maintain independence in their own homes. It is a physical space and digital platform for all who wish to support vulnerable people and an aging population living within Telford and Wrekin.
