About Intermediate Care

Brampton Lodge provides services for intermediate care to assist people who require rehabilitation to enable them to remain independent in the community. They will have either come from home or hospital and will have been assessed by a specialist team to ensure they will benefit from a period of intermediate care. They will receive support from our team of health professionals and following a multi disciplinary team meeting they will be discharged home to live independently in their own homes with assessed support. There is no cost to people who are in the Intermediate Care Unit except hairdressing.

Staff in Brampton Lodge provide everyday support to residents using this service and work alongside the health professionals from the NHS. A care plan will be established in-conjunction with the resident and their family and will be regularly reviewed to ensure that all of the residents needs continue to be met.

How It Works

Four Stages of intermediate care – What to expect

Before

You’ll have an assessment by a professional, that takes into account your abilities, needs and wishes. There will be involvement with your family if you wish, in decisions about intermediate care. This includes whether it will be suitable for you and which setting it will be provided in.

 

Start

You’ll be given information about the service and what will be involved. You’ll receive support to plan what you are aiming for (your goals) and how to reach them. These discussions can include your family and carers if you wish. You’ll have the opportunity to ask questions.

 

Receiving

You’ll receive support from a range of people, including therapists, to help you towards your goals. How long the service lasts may change, depending on the progress you make. Any information you need to help achieve your aims will be written in a way that makes sense to you.

 

End

If you need ongoing support, you’ll be given a plan for transferring to another service. Information about other types of support available will be provided. You’ll be given information about how to refer yourself back to the service, if you need to.
