Grove House Care Home in the Wirral has a maximum of 20 beds which North Cheshire and Wirral Partnership can use to help provide transitional and intermediate care to people in the local community.
The reason for providing intermediate care in the Cheshire and Wirral area is to support individuals who have experienced an acute illness or trauma and following hospital treatment have been identified for further therapy that will enable a safe return to their own home.
Not sure if intermediate care is suitable for you or someone you know? Take a look at the below case study which explains the service we provide.
DJ was admitted to Grove House following a stay in hospital after falling at home due to his health and lifestyle. On admission he could only use a wheel chair for transfers. Following physiotherapy, adaptations from occupational therapy and high quality care provided day to day by the nurses and care team, DJ was discharged to his own home, although he still required the use of a wheel chair. DJ wept as he left claiming that his stay at Grove House had changed his life and that it was one of the best experiences of his life declaring that the nurses and carers were unbelievable. Our nurses and carers also wept as they said goodbye!
Intermediate care is only a short term option to help get people out of hospital, but back on their feet before they return home.
Grove House receives on average 2-3 admissions per week. The average stay for these admissions is 7 weeks, due to the beds being a mixture of transitional and intermediate care. The Unit has been commended by the Wirral Local Authority for how quickly it’s been able to produce excellent results.
More information about the intermediate care service that we provide can be found on our website.
