Extended Care

We want to provide services to help people remain at home or recover during or after an illness or mental health crisis.

If someone does need to go to hospital unexpectedly, we aim to ensure they will be discharged as soon as they are well enough and provide them with the right services and care at home to help them recover.

Salford’s Extended Care Model will provide coordinated and personalised services that respond quickly to people whose health, both physical and mental, or social care needs suddenly deteriorate at home and for people who require support when they are leaving hospital.
The service will enable recovery and independence by providing responsive care, coordinated through neighbourhood teams.

Our new crisis response team will be made up of a number of health and care professionals such as physiotherapists, community nurses, mental health professionals, advanced practitioners and social workers. The team will provide an urgent response within two hours.

Benefits

  • Helping people get extra care when they need it to help them stay in, or close to, their home
  • Responsive care and urgent response when needed, ensuring the only choice for people isn’t a visit or stay in hospital.
