Intermediate Care

Intermediate care, including reablement, aims to offer care and support services to enable you to maintain or regain the ability to live independently in your own home or avoid premature admission to residential care.
It is a time limited intervention, usually of up to six weeks, but it should not have a strict time limit. The support provided should depend on your needs and the outcomes the support seeks to achieve. The health and care professionals responsible for your care in circumstances outlined in section 3, are responsible for deciding if you would benefit from such services.
Intermediate care should be seen as a stage in your overall care, not simply an isolated service. It can help identify the long term support you need after an accident or illness.
