PACT – Prevention Avoidance Community Team, working with Lincolnshire Partnership Foundation Trust
“People are living longer, the need and demand to care for them increases. We need to be smart and creative in catering for this, particularly in an environment with diminishing budgets”. Jane Marshall LPFT
The current project for PACT is a response to recent news on bed blocking. The team pool their resources to firstly address the initial medical needs quickly then get the individual back home, into a state of independence. This may include travel home, putting on their heating, taking them food shopping, providing them with company and assessing the individuals future needs.
Mirroring the vision of PACT, Jane states “Our aim is to continually provide a service you would expect a member of your family to receive”.
