Following hospital treatment, or recovery from an operation, many individuals are not ready to return home straight away.



Rehabilitation needs differ between individuals. At Exemplar Health Care, our specialist care teams determine individual needs and rehabilitation required to encourage people to regain their independence, confidence and the assurance they need to return home.

Specialist nurses within our care homes will carry out an assessment with the individual in need of support, their families and professionals to create a personal care plan. This plan is uniquely tailored to the individual, and will set out short and long term goals to encourage self-development.

Exemplar Health Care’s homes work with physiotherapists, speech and language therapists, multi-disciplinary teams and more – who all work together with service users, and individually to ensure goals are met and independence is increased.

Following the completion of their rehabilitation plan, individuals will have been supported to achieve their goals – whether that’s to return home or to extended care pathways such as Exemplar Health Care’s OneCare services. Exemplar Health Care’s OneCare services are houses and flats located onsite, or very close to our homes. OneCare services are extended pathways of care, allowing for independent living – still with the access to care as and when required.

Helen's story

We encourage as much self-advocacy and peer support as possible. As always, care and support is risk assessed, but we think creatively about options for safe solutions that allow people to do the things that matter to them. It’s fantastic to see people really flourishing in our OneCare services.”
