The Multidisciplinary Service (MDS)

The Multidisciplinary Service is a new integrated Health and Social Care team, which has been developed to provide short term support and early intervention to help people remain safely in their own home. The service is aimed at people who are:

  1. Aged 65 years and over
  2. Living in the Borough of Stockton
  3. Currently not open to a social care professional

The service, which comprises a multi professional team, works with Health, Social Care and the VCSE (Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise), and can provide help with issues such as:

  • Functional decline/ frailty
  • Social isolation
  • Financial issues
  • Fuel poverty
  • Assist in obtaining aids and adaptations where required
  • Onecall/Telecare

People will receive an assessment from a Wellbeing Facilitator who will then create an individual support plan, ensuring that the client is always at the centre of the care they receive, with any support/ intervention given free during the first 6 weeks.

Where to go

Assessments take place in a persons home and, due to the holistic nature of the assessment, usually last between 1-2 hours.
