Keep Safe Stay Well Service


‘Keep Safe, Stay Well’ is a new and unique service which is being introduced in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead. The partnership between RBWM council, Windsor, Ascot and Maidenhead CCG and care provider, MiHomecare will focus on supporting people to maintain their health and wellbeing and prevent loneliness. The service will provide early help so that people stay as well and independent as possible, and will have a particular focus on falls prevention and addressing social isolation. The service will actively help people to get what they need to keep safe and stay well.
