Older Person's Star™
The Outcomes Star™ for later life
The Older Person's Star has a focus on re-enablement and measures progress towards maximising independence and well-being. It is suitable for use in settings with one-to-one support from a keyworker, but also includes a shorter version which is suitable for use in resource centres or day services, where there is less one-to-one time with older people.
Development: Triangle with service providers and commissioners from Camden, Westminster, Brent and Hammersmith and Fulham Borough Councils.
