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.

Residents, relatives and the care team at Midfield Lodge Care Home in Cambridge enjoyed a good old fashioned Christmas sing a long, to help everyone get into the festive spirit.
Sherrill Thomas, Home Manager, said: “Everyone enjoyed the sing along. There was a mixture of Christmas classics and songs from the residents’ younger years. To keep the festive theme going, everyone enjoyed tea and mince pies. We also held a raffle for those last minute stocking fillers and held a silent auction. It was strange having a completely silent home. A lovely afternoon was had by all.”
