Issue details

Independent Living Demonstration & Assessment Centre

To agree for the project to spend up to the budget of £199,000.00, and to award and sign a build contract for the works, and awarding a contract for a small number of equipment items not available from the Council’s equipment provider.

The project aim is to develop an area within the Hillside building, to be used as a facility for demonstration and showcasing of equipment and adaptations, including technology, and also to support the provision of advice and Occupational Therapy assessment. The Centre will be designed to provide an environment that reflects a domestic house setting, giving a more realistic representation of how the equipment will feel and work within the customer’s own home. The Centre will provide opportunities to support our operational offer and approach to the Prevention agenda, as well as providing advice and support self-funders, and also providing an outreach element to support the Care Homes run by Herefordshire Council.
