Care in the Community

Community Service

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 5 days per week and will be 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 well-being. 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 will provide bespoke and flexible rehabilitation and support packages by our skilled and experienced multi-disciplinary team based at Peartree House. This brings unrivalled opportunities to problem-solve any challenges.

We ensure that all of our staff are fully competent in managing the support and therapy plans of people with complex neurological and physical needs. All staff are required to work in the inpatient service first to enable the application of this knowledge into practice in order to deliver the best service possible to our clients in the community.

  • Physiotherapy and Technical Instructor treatment.
  • Speech and Language Therapy treatment and dysphagia and communication education services.
  • Occupational therapy and Occupational therapy Assistant treatment.
  • Clinical Neuropsychology treatment.

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 could be provided by support workers or rehabilitation assistants. This support will be provided based on an agreed hourly provision or a 24 hour supported living set-up following an assessment of need.

We will ensure that all of our staff are fully competent in managing support plans to those with complex needs. This will be achieved through our robust induction and training programmes.

Through measured and assessed positive risk management, the staff team supportively promote each person to become an active participant in their care, enabling them to reach their maximum potential in all areas of life.

Bespoke support plans are delivered with consideration of needs and preferences in all domains.

Staff work with individuals to identify their needs and preferences in all areas before taking a positive risk approach to building bespoke support plans with the individual and their network.
