Proactive Care Team (Horsham)

Proactive care is a new model of community based care to support people with complex health and care needs and their carers. The simple aim is to help you avoid unnecessary hospitalisation and to stay healthy and independent for as long as possible, in your own home and community.
Frail older people and people with long-term health problems too often find that the health and care support they need is:

  • Fragmented when it should be coordinated.
  • Difficult to use when it should be easy.

Proactive care is a way to fix this problem. It involves the health and social care staff that look after you working together in new ways to coordinate the care you need. The goal is to shift the balance of care away from reactive crisis intervention, towards independent health and well-being, by empowering patients to self-manage their care, with specialist support.
