How can we help?
- We reduce pressures on hospital beds by providing a flexible, responsive, high quality alternative to an older person remaining in hospital.
- By facilitating ‘discharge to assessment’, we support older patients in a caring and homelike environment where their needs can continue to be assessed.
- We work with multidisciplinary healthcare teams as part of NHS Continuing Healthcare to support the managed discharge of patients with ongoing care needs.
- We ensure that older people can stay close to, or within, their community, maintaining their social links and supporting their mental wellbeing.
- We undertake all assessments within 24 hours of receiving a referral and will admit a person within 48 hours of receiving a referral, where it is safe to do so. We will admit a person within 72 hours during bank holidays and weekends, to allow for the engagement of external support services and wihting our most current policies
- We provide high quality nursing care whenever it is needed and support a person’s re-ablement and self-care wherever feasible, working with you, and the patient and their family, to agree their ongoing care.
- We involve the patient in all decision making, care planning and care co-ordination. Each patient receives personalised care and discharge plans with appropriate objectives.
- We pride ourselves in giving patients and their families practical advice and emotional support as they move through their care journey.
- If a patient is approaching their last days, our home teams provide sensitive, high quality care and support in a warm, homelike setting.
