OneCare services: extended care pathways
At Exemplar, we know that for many reasons, a care home environment may not be the right fit for some individuals living with complex needs.
Working with funders and individuals in care settings, we have developed a range of OneCare services – specially adapted individual houses and flats for people who do not require the wraparound care of a home, but still need support.
OneCare services are located either on site, or very close to our care homes – sometimes literally down the garden path. OneCare services allow any type of care or nursing to be extended from the main home, whilst at the same time allowing individuals to live independently or with support, depending on their unique needs.
We ensure our OneCare services meet the accessibility, sensory and other unique needs of the person who will live there. OneCare services offer three integrated care solutions:
- An extended pathway of care for individuals on a rehabilitation journey
- A pathway into care for people with a progressive condition, who will require increasing support
- A sole occupancy environment for people with conditions unsuited to communal living
We develop OneCare services jointly with local funders – sometimes with specific service users already in mind, or to meet future need. We buy, adapt and fully refurbish properties close to our nurse-led care homes, and where demand is greatest, develop areas of our existing homes to create OneCare apartments which are accessed separately from the main home.
We provide thorough care planning, regular needs assessment, goal-setting and outcomes-tracking to every service user across Exemplar.
