Rehabilitation

Many of our care homes provide specialist nursing care that supports people on their rehabilitation journey following hospital treatment, an accident or an operation.

Everyone’s rehabilitation journey is different – and we understand that at Exemplar Health Care. That’s why our approach is personalised to the individuals that we support.

We work with them, their loved ones and professionals to design a care plan that’s tailored to their needs and goals, and enhanced through meaningful activities that make life more fulfilling.

Our specialist care homes have the staffing levels, expertise and facilities to support people living with complex needs on their rehabilitation journey, including following a spinal injury, complex mental health need or brain injury/stroke.

They provide a welcoming and supportive environment where people can feel at home, continue to do the things that they enjoy, and remain closer to family, friends and loved ones.

High staffing levels to support person-centred outcomes

At Exemplar Health Care, our care focuses on supporting people to maximise their independence and develop their everyday living skills.

Our approach involves working with individuals, their loved ones and professionals to design a care plan that’s tailored to their needs and goals, including re-integration into the wider community.

Our high staffing levels of Registered Nurses and trained Health Care Assistants are determined by each person’s individual needs, which can include constant observation, either 2:1 or 1:1.

This enables us to work at their own pace and build trust, and provide support with all aspects of their life, leading to improved person-centred and longer-term outcomes for those living with complex mental health needs.

Holistic care in a community-based home

Our homes are led by an experienced Nurse-led management team, and supported by a trained in-house team of Registered Nurses and Health Care Assistants.

All of our homes have an in-house Life Skills Team to support people to take part in meaningful activities, get involved in their local community and build their independent living skills.

Many of our homes also have an in-house Therapy Team including Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists. Our Physiotherapists work with people to maintain optimal muscle function, limit deterioration and learn new ways to maximise their independence. And our Occupational Therapists help people to overcome the effects of their condition, injury or illness, by considering their physical, psychological, social and environmental needs.

Everyone who lives in our homes also has the support of Exemplar Health Care’s clinical experts, including Behaviour Support Specialists and a Consultant Psychiatrist at times of increased distressed or crisis.

This enables people to access holistic care and a range of services in a community-based home that’s closer to their friends and family.

We also work closely with community teams and other professionals, where required, to ensure that people receive the required support to meet all of their rehabilitation needs.

Supportive living environments

Our care homes have been designed to promote independence and empower people to live full lives.

Each of our homes has a number of ten-bed units, which promotes small group living which is more responsive to people’s needs.

They offer spacious bedrooms with a profiling bed with adjustable height and en-suite wet room/bathroom. Many of our homes also have rooms that are suitable for people with bariatric care needs.

Many of our homes have dedicated space for rehabilitation, including therapy rooms, exercise rooms and sensory rooms, as well as dedicated and accessible communal living and dining areas.

All of our homes, inside and outside, are accessible for people who use wheelchairs and use equipment to support their care.

OneCare services: supporting rehabilitation

Our OneCare services provide specialist nursing care for people living with complex and high acuity needs, in a single or dual occupancy domestic environment.

They offer a bespoke package of care that’s developed to meet people’s complex and individual needs.

As well as providing a home for those who benefit from living alone, some people live in our OneCare services as part of their rehabilitation journey to lower acuity care settings.

OneCare offers care, nursing and accommodation costs in one weekly fee, which enables people to progress on their journey at their own pace, without the need to apply for other benefits or set up utilities, and allows a straightforward reassessment and transfer between our nursing homes and OneCare services as required by the individual.
