This is the product description and  of the 'Index of Potential Care Need' as part of the wider intergrated care project. The Index of Potential Care Need, classifies the older population of Bolton according to their risk of future early reliance upon intensive social care and support services.  The Index has been constructed by combining a range of risk factors known to be associated with early reliance on social care services such as living alone, having alcohol problems, and experiencing reduced daily activities and similar.  The aim of the Index is preventative and is designed to target people before they become too ill and/or dependent and need to access social care.
