Providing exceptional rehabilitation, long term
Providing exceptional rehabilitation, long term complex care and community support.
Neurological rehabilitation is a person-centred, inter-disciplinary treatment approach. It is continued over 24 hours in a holistic and coordinated manner to optimise the wellbeing, quality of life and functional outcomes of clients with neurological impairments. This involves the delivery of evidence-based therapeutic interventions incorporating the individual’s goals and needs. Short term and long term client-centred goals are set through regular goal planning meetings with the individual, carers, family and inter-disciplinary team facilitated by a Key Worker. The duration of rehabilitation may be from weeks to months depending on agreed goals.
Peartree House works in accordance with the UK Rehabilitation Outcomes Collaborative (UKROC) guidelines to demonstrate client progress alongside therapy-specific outcome measures.
Long Term Complex Care
We provide long term, nurse-led support to individuals with complex needs following an acquired brain injury including traumatic, anoxic or acquired brain injury, stroke, spinal cord damage, progressive neurological condition, and disorders of consciousness.
Led by a Matron, the nursing team provide round-the-clock care to support clients in areas such as general health, managing medication, continence, tissue viability, communication, nutrition, behaviour, comfort and emotional wellbeing. The ultimate goal is an enhanced quality of life for the client and their family.
Early Supported Discharge and Community Service
These newly established services support the client in achieving a timely discharge and reduced length of stay through a phased return home, and provide rehabilitation and support services to clients already living at home. Clients supported via these services may have received rehabilitation at Peartree House, a similar facility, or in hospital. Some clients may already be at home and suffered a deterioration in function requiring a period of rehabilitation and support.
Both services are provided over five days a week and are based on an agreed number of sessions and person-centred goals.
We can provide support in every aspect of physical, cognitive, communication, swallow and psychological wellbeing. Clients may also be supported by a care package of support workers.
Clients will benefit from continued rehabilitation in their own environment, optimising functional gains made within the inpatient, acute setting. Funders will benefit from a value for money service, paying only for the provision required.
These services provide bespoke and flexible rehabilitation and support packages by our skilled and experienced inter-disciplinary team based at Peartree House. This brings unrivalled opportunities to problem-solve any challenges.
We ensure that all of our staff are fully skilled in managing the care, support and therapy plans of people with complex neurological and physical needs. All staff are required to work in the inpatient service first to consolidate their knowledge into practice in order to deliver the best possible service to our clients in the community.

Domiciliary Care, Supported Living Provision
The Peartree House Community Service is registered with the Care Quality Commission to provide care for adults who require personal care. We work with the individual, family and case manager to ensure ‘best fit staff’ are recruited for each support package.
Support packages at home are provided by Support Workers or Rehabilitation Assistants. This support is delivered on an agreed hourly provision or a 24 hour supported living set-up following an assessment of need.
We ensure that all of our staff are fully skilled in managing care and support plans to those with complex needs. This is achieved through our robust induction and training programmes.
