This will prevent any further deconditioning post transfer and enable patients to quickly transition into being able to optimise their self-care and improve their well-being This integrated care home based reablement service will enable patients initially unable to go home following discharge from the Acute sector, to have all their eligibly assessments completed promptly when fully optimised and away from the acute care setting. The requirement includes care for and support to patients with cognitive needs as well as general care needs with 24/7 reablement support to prevent further deconditioning and actively promote self-care. All of this supported by on-site 7 days a week therapy to ensure all patients are assessed on transfer and personal goals set. This is to be coordinated by regular multi-disciplinary team meetings held as appropriate to the patients’ needs but at least on a weekly basis. There are 7 lots as detailed in this notice – please see attachment on Lots and estimated contract values.
