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.

What to expect then:

Following the referral a member of the team will visit you as quickly as possible, to talk to you about your situation and discuss your needs.  If it is agreed that the team can help you, a care and treatment plan is developed with you.

If you receive services, you will have a folder called the ‘Service User Plan’, which you can keep to look after. It will include your support plan and other information showing you, team members, and your family the progress you are making. All staff visiting you will use your plan to chart your progress, and record their visits.

Please keep this folder safe. It's yours for as long as you receive our help.

Any information we hold about you is confidential and only shared with others who need to know, like your GP, and only after you have agreed to this. As your condition improves and your needs change, we will amend your plan accordingly.
