Block-booking Assessment Beds

The purpose of Continuing Care Assessment beds is to support the transition between a period of acute illness in hospital and the provision of care services to meet the longer term needs of the individual and to provide a flexible, accessible and responsive, time-limited interdisciplinary service to adult service-users of all ages, which is person-centred, cost effective and outcome based.

The overall aim of the Continuing Care Assessment Service is to assess service-users and to determine their future care. This may be:
* Home with or without a package of care
* Intermediate care (home or bed based)
* Care home with nursing care
* Residential home.

 
The individual, the effect their needs have on them, and the ways in which they would prefer to be supported should be kept at the heart of the process. Access to assessment, care provision and support should be fair, consistent and free from discrimination.
As part of the whole system the overall objectives of the Continuing Care Assessment beds are to help:
§  Promote recovery from illness.
§  Avoid inappropriate admission to hospital or a care home on a long term basis.
§  Support and facilitate a timely transfer of care.
§  Promote independence
§  Determine the long-term care plan and preferred option for the individual
§  Support arrangements regarding End of Life Care.
