Lancashire: Care > Intermediate /after hospital care services

Intermediate or after hospital care is provided by services on a short term basis, at home or in a residential setting, to people who need some degree of rehabilitation, convalescence, or recuperation. The key aims of these services are the prevention of unnecessary hospital admission, to facilitate early hospital discharge, to prevent premature or unnecessary care home admissions, and to enable people to live as independently as possible. Intermediate Care can be described as services that don’t need general hospital resources, but does substitute for some parts of hospital care. Intermediate Care is a generic term that covers a wide range of services that help prevent unnecessary admission to hospital, or help facilitate early discharge and it offers elderly people an attractive alternative to hospital care. Rehabilitation at home can support people recovering from an illness, and can support their carers, relatives, and neighbours. It offers people the opportunity to convalesce and recover with a planned programme of care and support. After hospital care is usually provided by a single organisation which brings together and provides a variety of services for people whose care needs can be complex. Intermediate care services have to link with care and social work agencies, as needed. Short term rehabilitation services can be provided in various settings, such as people’s own homes (including sheltered or retirement housing), day centres, day hospitals, community hospitals, and care homes. If not provided in the home of an elderly person, rehabilitation should be provided in a residential setting close to their home. Free short term rehabilitation care can be provided by statutory, independent and voluntary organisations often working together, whilst private companies charge for these services. There may be charges for intermediate care provided for a week or two within a statutory or voluntary sector care home. After hospital care or time limited rehabilitation focuses’ on the needs of the individual, maximizing their independent living skills, and provides an on going flexible but planned rehabilitative care approach. These services help older people to regain independence and confidence. On average, time limited intermediate care is provided for up to 6 weeks, and it is targeted at those older people with complex health care needs that are changing for one reason or another.
