Intermediate care (falls and Home First)

We provide therapy and nursing care/support to individuals at home following a referral from your GP or local hospital or another health or social care professional.   We are a team of nurses, occupational therapists, physio therapists and health and care workers who work with individuals to support them with short-term rehabilitation at home.  We work very closely with reablement teams in Social Services and with GP’s, District Nurses and Community Matrons to avoid individuals unnecessary stay or admission to hospital.  The service includes support and education relating to a recent fall or trip; to support you at home and prevent unnecessary hospital admission; to support individuals at home after a hospital stay.  The number of visits and length of support will depend on an assessment and establishing your needs and goals in partnership with you and your family/carers. supporting and caring for patients in the community,
