Rapid Response Care At Home
We have been providing an out-of-hours rapid response care at home services for more than three years’ throughout the South West of the UK.
The aim of our service is to prevent unnecessary hospital admissions and ease pressure points during the year (such as winter bed blocking), enabling individuals to be cared for efficiently in the comfort of their own home.
We have a team of specially trained emergency care workers who are strategically placed around the counties, these care workers are on standby and will respond to an individual service user within a few hours of a call-out to provide out-of-hours emergency care in the home.
Referrals can be placed by A&E departments, out-of-hours GPs, district nursing services, NHS Direct, walk-in centres and local social service departments, including emergency duty teams.
A rapid response call-out will be followed up with a complete re-assessment of the service user’s care needs (where requested) with a live-in care programme adjusted accordingly, with the possibility of longer-term care to ensure full independence of the service user.
Fast Track Discharge Service
Our Fast-Track Discharge Service is designed more as an interim emergency service to enable patients to be discharged safely and promptly from the hospital once they are deemed medically fit.
Where local providers are failing to provide the required care for patients on discharge, our rapid response care at home service ensures discharge dates are met or brought forward, while patients return home with the necessary care in place.
Supplying live-in care staff as the interim care service on hospital discharges has proven to reduce the percentage of hospital readmissions, and also improves their quality of life.
It works because our diverse workforce can move to any location and work in a variety of flexible ways according to service user’s care needs.
The live-in care recruitment market is not challenged like the domiciliary market and means solution based services such as this can be implemented quickly and safely.
