This strategy sets out our ambitions and intentions for the care market. We need to develop a range of quantitative and qualitative measures to assess its success, and these will include:

  • A reduction in permanent admissions to residential care
  • A reduction in the supply of care home beds
  • An increase in the use of short-term Services
  • An increase in the % of people supported to live in their own home/community
  • An increase in care market recruitment and retention rates
  • An increase in the % of care providers rated Good or Outstanding
  • An increase in satisfaction with services for care users and for unpaid carers
  • An increase in the number of people supported via care technology to live as independently as possible
  • An increase in adults with learning disabilities accessing paid employment
  • Continued high levels of satisfaction on quality of care, value for money and choice
  • Readiness for the Social Care Reforms and the reforms land well across Essex
