What does it do?
The service has been developed in partnership with Lincolnshire County Council (LCC) and will work with individuals who are in need of secondary level support following:
- A critical incident in their lives
- An episode of acute ill health (often chronic disease)
- An assessment which indicates social isolation, poor health or gradual decline in ability to live independently
- When time limited support is required following a hospital stay or crisis
The service is short term, usually time limited up to a maximum of 6 weeks, and for individuals that do not meet the LCC’s Fair Access to Care criteria but are assessed as needing secondary level support in order to maintain or re-gain improved levels of independence and prevent or reduce their need for statutory services.
Who it is for: The Bridge Project is a service designed to support older People (aged over 65) living in Lincolnshire, who are at risk of losing their independence.
Where it is available:Local service covering: Boston, East Lindsey, Lincoln, North East Lincolnshire, North Kesteven, North Lincolnshire, South Holland, South Kesteven, West Lindsey (Lincolnshire).
