ECC Adult Social Care (ASC), through effective practice, is moving towards a transformational shift from a focus on long-term care support, to a model with four key principles: prevention; early intervention; enablement and safeguarding. This will enable people, their families, and carers to access information and tools, live healthily and independently and for ASC, an opportunity to respond pro-actively to growing service demand in a sustainable way.

Use knowledge and skills to evaluate the functional ability of people and their networks with an emphasis on prevention, personalisation, recovery, progression and independence.
Use clinical reasoning skills to advise on independence, daily living equipment and adaptations, including complex solutions, such as adaptations for social housing and championing the use of assistive technology including digital care solutions.
Manage a caseload effectively, to meet timescales set for interventions, maintain appropriate recording systems and support information reporting.
Appropriately identify eligibility and statutory compliance in line with current legislative policy and advise people, their networks and carers of their rights, the options available to them and how they can live meaningful and independent lives.
Work in partnership with internal and external partners across the health, private and voluntary sector, to support effective integration between health and social care and collaboration to ensure that systems are joined up and accessible
