Leaving Hospital - Getting Back to Yourself
What does it do?
Sometimes it can be hard getting back to yourself following a spell in hospital. Intermediate Care is provided by social and health care staff who work together to support people. This team can support people to: Stay at home while recovering from injury or illness - Leave hospital more quickly following treatment - In some cases, prevent the need to be admitted into hospital at all
It does this by offering a programme of time limited, short-term, get you back to yourself support. This help can sometimes be provided either:
- in your own home; or
- you may stay for a short while in one of the rehabilitation unit.
