Enabling people to remain at home safely and independently. The Intermediate Care and Rehabilitation Service supports anyone over the age of 18 who is a permanent resident of Rhondda Cynon Taf and is eligible to receive our support.
Our Intermediate Care and Rehabilitation Service may be able to help if you are:
- recovering from a recent illness or accident
- anxious about going home from hospital
- well enough to go home but worried about your ability to cope
- wanting to do more for yourself
We work to promote your independence by encouraging you to learn or re-learn basic living skills. The service is provided on a short-term. We cannot work with you indefinitely, so if you require ongoing support, we will look at longer-term alternatives to support you.
The service provides support with day-to-day aspects of daily living by assisting, encouraging and supervising with tasks, such as:
- personal care
- meal preparation
- exercise programmes
- mobilising safety in the home and outdoors
- making sure you have the right equipment
- therapeutic activities
- referring onto other community services like the Safe@Home project and Telecare
We will assess your needs and discuss with you a plan of support. Together we will identify and agree your personal goals and targets. The goals will vary depending on your individual circumstances, and will be designed to help you remain as independent as possible in your own home.
You may find that, as part of your plan of support, specialist equipment will be useful to help you manage independently. If this is the case, our Community Occupational Therapists would be able to advise on how aids and adaptations can be provided to overcome.
Our Intermediate Care and Rehabilitation Service is provided free of charge for a maximum of 6 weeks, but the service will only be given for as long as you remain in need of our assistance. If you continue to receive support after the initial 6 week period, you will be charged in accordance with our Charging for Non Residential Social Services policy. We can give you more details at this time, so you won’t receive an unexpected bill.
