Who is the service for?

Intermediate care is a service that is designed to rehabilitate you with input from a team of dedicated professionals. It is a service which promotes faster recovery from illness, prevents unnecessary hospital admissions, supports timely discharges and maximises independent living.

Intermediate care is targeted at people who face unnecessary prolonged hospital stays or avoidable admissions to hospital, residential or continuing care.

What does the service provide?

The intermediate care team will work with you in your own home to set achievable goals and plan your care to enable you to become as independent as possible. They will devise a rehabilitation programme to suit your needs. Where possible you will be encouraged to participate in activities which you would normally do such as preparing your meals or attending to your personal care and you may be prescribed a home exercise programme where applicable. Treatments may require you to become involved in group activities and one to one sessions.
