Overview

Who we are

The team consists of a modern matron, registered nurses, rehabilitation assistants, health care assistants, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, a care manager, a pharmacist and visiting medical consultants.

What we do

We provide a rehabilitation-focussed inpatient approach to care. There are 22 beds available and the hospital takes patients directly from their own homes, when they are unable to cope at home, but do not need to be in an acute hospital.

We offer a service for patients, within the acute sector, who are medically stable but need further rehabilitation.

Our aim is to help patients regain their independence where appropriate, and to teach them coping strategies, for example after a stroke. Staff work in partnership with the patient, carer and relatives to ensure all aspects of care, including assessment of needs on admission, joint goal setting, planning, implementation and evaluation of care, are effective.

Patients needing rehabilitation after a stroke are referred on to the Sapphire Unit based at Gravesham Community Hospital so they can receive the specialist input necessary to obtain the optimum result.
