Intermediate care at home and reablement are short term services that aim to support and encourage individuals who have experienced a change in their circumstances.

The types of support available are: personal care, meal preparation, continence care, mobility, medication support.
The service is registered with CQC and consists of a team manager, 2 deputy managers, administration assistants, senior reablement support workers and reablement support workers. The service is part of the wider Intermediate Care Tier Services and has access to Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists and Nurses.
The team operates between the hours 7am till 11pm 7 days per week. It is available for people 18 years of age or over who have a Warrington GP or pay council tax to Warrington Borough Council and have rehabilitation goals. The service is accessed via a referral thorough Single point of access, Hospital discharge team or First response Service.
