What is Micro-care?
Micro-care is a new way of delivering care and support to people in Flintshire.
Micro-carers are people, or small businesses who offer flexible and personalised care, support or well-being services to people.
They work with their clients to find out what matters most and the best way to support them to achieve their goals or outcomes.
Micro-carers can support people with a variety of things, which could include:
Domiciliary care services Respite for carers Holidays and short breaks Activities that bring people together Leisure, wellbeing and social opportunities Cleaning Assistance with bills Pet care Befriending/companionship Help with gardening Provide meals for people in their own home Getting in and out of bed Shopping for one or more people
Micro-carers can be paid through a Direct Payment, or through a person’s own funds.
The Micro-care project is supported by Flintshire County Council in partnership with the Welsh Government, the Leader 2014-2020 funding scheme, with Cadwyn Clwyd as the administrative body and Social Firms Wales to support the development of Micro-Care enterprises in Flintshire.
