Integrated Care Service at Howdon Care Home
Here at Howdon Care Home we work together with North Tyneside NHS to provide Integrated Care Services to patients who have had a serious accident or illness but no longer require hospital treatment.
The unit provides 24 hour qualified nursing and specialist therapy in a safe and relaxed environment for patients who have had a serious accident or illness, but no longer require hospital treatment. Specialist staff from both organisations work with patients and their families and / or carers to design a package of support tailored to individual needs and requirements. These include GPs, nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and social workers. Patients are referred to the units by the trust’s Home Safe and Care Point teams based in our hospitals.
In the films below, patients share how our unit is giving them increased confidence to settle back at home and help to prevent further hospital admissions.
