Context

Intermediate care is a core delivery priority of the Partnership.

Intermediate care is a collection of services that focus on prevention, rehabilitation, reablement and recovery. They can provide an alternative to going into hospital and provide extra support after a hospital stay. 

The Bellfield Centre is an innovative, integrated service which was a cornerstone of the 2016-19 Strategic Plan. It opened in winter 2018 and provides integrated intermediate health and social care services mainly for older people within a modern purpose built, homely facility with 116 short stay care rooms.  

The Centre will continue to evolve over the next 3 years. It is important that this links to the core priorities and the Implementation Plan for Intermediate Care for the Partnership.

Care closer to home, via Community Nursing intends to provide assessment, treatment and care at home for a short period. It is key that this service becomes integrated with social care via Reablement and Technology Enabled Care thus maximising efficiency of resources, and ensuring the appropriate skills mix within the workforce.

Options/improvements

  • Focus provision of bed based services within 2 ‘Centres of Excellence’ at Stirling Health and Care Village and Clackmannanshire Community Healthcare Centre (CCHC). This will require substantial redesign of services provided at CCHC, in line with the new model of care recently implemented at Bellfield Centre.
  • Redesign of respite care services.
  • Explore opportunities to develop new care models including housing with care, as well as other opportunities that may exist or arise, to replace the residential care home in Menstrie.
  • Develop closer links to Third Sector to deliver community based support and redesign of respite care services leading to the withdrawal of services from Ludgate House.
  • Develop closer links to Third Sector to deliver community based support and redesign of respite care services leading to the withdrawal of services from Strathendrick care home.
  • Work with all providers in the Third and Independent Sectors to commission Care at Home Services focussed on helping people achieve personal outcomes, such as regaining independence, and targeted to greatest need.
  • Review of Housing Contribution Statement to determine level of appropriate housing to support people to remain well and independent in their own homes and communities.
