As delayed transfers of care remain at record highs, how can we reduce unnecessary hospital stays for older people? That was the key question at an HSJ event held in association with Four Seasons Health Care.
The roundtable heard that the healthcare system often finds reasons not to deal with care home residents and looked at the success of an innovative collaboration between the NHS and care homes in Belfast.
With a collaborative approach between care homes and the NHS, older people are able to leave hospital and receive expert care, whilst assessing whether their long term future would be in their current home or a local care home. “The idea is that it would provide short term rehabilitation in conjunction with the two trusts in that area. The joint partnerships with the trusts I’ve worked with have just been amazing, and that’s what makes it work”, explained Janice Brown, Four Seasons’ regional manager for the Belfast and Newtownabbey area.
In addition to the improvements from a collaborative solution, South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust reported that the joint partnership approach of providing a bed in a care home reduced their yearly cost by more than half.

Living in a care home can give you the same sense of pride as living in your own family home. This was certainly the case at Broadacres Care Home in Rotherham.
Helen Walker, Home Manager, explained: “The residents wanted to make the most of the beautiful weather, and sit ou tin the garden. However, the grass needed cutting so the residents enlisted the help of our lovely maintenance man who got the lawn mower out.
“Before he could start cutting the grass, one of our lovely gentlemen offered to do the job himself. A fine job he did too!
“He’s now offered to do this on a regular basis, as gardening used to be a hobby of his that he’d like to pick back up. “

Choosing a pet can be a hard decision to make. The residents from Broadacres Care Home in Rotherham tried their hand with a number of pets before they made their decision.
They welcomed the local Pets at Home in, who brought with them a variety of fluffy friends for the residents to pet and play with.
Helen Walker, Home Manager, said: “The residents enjoyed getting hands on with the animals. They also had the opportunity to ask any questions they had regarding a prospective pet.”
After the animals left and much deliberation the residents decided that the Broadacres pet would be a bunny rabbit.
We’ll keep you updated when the new arrival arrives.
