Growing Older/Planning Ahead - Learning Disability & Autism Survey

Healthwatch Hartlepool and Healthwatch organisations across the Tees Valley are working together in partnership with the North East and North Cumbria Integrated Care Board (NENC ICB) to deliver a local response to the national requirement to improve the planning process for when families may no longer be able to support their family member to stay at home.
We would like to know what the needs are of those with a learning disability, what would make the transition easier as those people get older, what has been the experience of health and social care services and help to ensure sufficient and adequate services are in place for those with more complex needs.
It is important that services know what this looks like and how it feels. Everyone’s views will also establish a baseline of what local people’s knowledge of current services are and the expectations of local services to meet carers needs and the needs of the person being cared for.
Below are links to 3 separate surveys.
There is a survey specifically for carers, one for the person being cared for and one for professionals who may deliver care.

If you require the survey in Easy Read please download and send it to the address on our website.
