If are ready to be discharged from hospital but require some intensive rehabilitation therapy that cannot be provided in your own home, The Beacon provides a residential option as part of our ‘from hospital to home’ service.
The Beacon provides 24 / 7 rehabilitation and re-enablement for people who require a short period of support and are unable to be at home.
Our aim is to get you back to where you want to be following a period of illness or crisis.
We want to help you maintain your independence and stay in the community wherever possible and avoid extended hospital stays or unnecessary care placements.
The Beacon is not a care home or nursing home. It is a residential unit specifically designed to provide short-term support for those who would benefit from intensive rehabilitation and re-enablement services.
The centre is staffed by a multi-disciplinary team who design and implement personalised plans of care and then liaise with your own GP, District Nurse, the hospital, Adult Social Care and your family to ensure there is a seamless service from hospital and ultimately back into your own home.
Part of our team are experience support workers, trained in techniques to encourage and help you to regain your skills and mobility that will allow you to regain as independent life as possible.
We work with you to set your rehabilitation goals and then put in place a plan and support to help you achieve these goals.
The Beacon helps people in many different situations including:
Monday – Sunday 2pm – 4pm, 6pm – 8.30pm
Access to The Beacon and its services is through referral only by contacting the Single Point of Access (01472 256256) which is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and is subject to an assessment by a health or social care professional.
You must be a resident of North East Lincolnshire and be registered with a GP.
