We offer intensive support in your own home by a team of practitioners as an alternative to hospital admission. We can also provide you with support when you are discharged from an inpatient ward, if discharge planning indicates you need further intensive support.
We take referrals from Integrated Delivery Teams, the Access and Assessment team and also take referrals from inpatient wards to help towards your early discharge.
We operate 365 days a year. We can be contacted through a pager system 24 hours a day.
You can expect an individual care plan tailored to your needs, written in conjuction with the relevent carers and support networks you may have in place. We can provide up to twice daily visits and telephone contact based on your individual needs.

During your treatment, family and carers form part of your assessment and care. With your permission, we may ask to speak regularly to your relative and carer in order to receive and provide information, offer support and work collabratively towards your overall care. We have links with community resources for carers and can direct you to these as appropriate.
