Intermediate Care at Home is a short-term service for adults focusing on promoting independence. This will be provided in your own home and delivers support to help you build confidence in improving your mobility and daily living skills.
The care is intensive for a short period of time, usually 3 weeks, and focusses on promoting self-care, independence and enabling you to reach or regain an optimum level of independence.
We aim to achieve the best possible outcomes with you and for you by working in partnership with your family, carers, other integrated health and social care professionals such as nurses, therapists, social workers and anyone else relevant to improving your health and well-being
The aim is to help you return back to a lifestyle you choose.
There are three different elements of the service:
Responding to an emergency situation for a limited number of days.
Support to regain independence following an illness or a sudden change in circumstances.
Short-term intervention to support capacity within Crisis Support and Start.
Support is provided from 7am – 11pm, 7 days a week, 365 days a year and provided for adults living in North East Lincolnshire
The team is made up of admission and discharge co-ordinators, team leader, integrated support workers officers, assistant practitioners and therapists who will work with you to promote your independence and enable you to remain at home.
The Intermediate Care at home team have been evaluated as providing Outstanding Care by the CQC.
