Who we are
We are a multi-disciplinary team comprising nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and therapy assistants.
What we do
We work to reduce hospital admissions and to help with early hospital discharge. The Rapid Response part of our team aims to assess patients in their own homes within two hours of referral.
Our service includes rehabilitation following surgery or falls with a focus on promoting independence and promotion of a healthier lifestyle. We work people aged 18-years-old and over. We work in people’s homes and in rehabilitation centres.
We can give advice about aids and adaptations and work closely with other community agencies to provide holistic care.
There is also an out-of-hours element to our work. This again provides support to patients in their own homes, but outside of office hours. Calls are passed to us by community nurses and On Call Care for patients who need assistance in the evening or during the night.
In some places, we provide an enhanced service, which operates in different ways in different places. For example in west Kent, we operate a Home Treatment Service that runs seven-days-a-week, 24-hours-a-day bringing together a community team including geriatricians, senior nurses and therapists. The team assesses and treats patients in their own home within two hours of referral. Referrals are made through a central unit and focus on people aged 75 and over.
