Intermediate support at home

If you need help at home because:

  • you have become unwell
  • you will need to go to hospital if you do not receive help
  • you suffer from a condition that makes it difficult for you to cope at home
  • you, or the people who normally support you, are struggling to manage your care needs
  • you have recently been discharged from hospital or will be going into hospital
  • you want to stay at home and try and be more independent

Please contact adult social care as you may be entitled to help and support.

Depending on your needs, you may receive an assessment by:

  • an occupational therapist
  • a physiotherapist
  • a social worker
  • a joint assessment

Depending on the outcome of the assessment and your own goals and preferences, you may be provided with:

  • equipment in your own home
  • a short period of community support in your home
  • a short period of support in our intermediate care centre
  • an exercise programme to help with your rehabilitation

If you are entitled to intermediate care, this will be a free service for a maximum of 6 weeks. At the end of a period of intermediate care you will receive an assessment of support to help you manage your care.
