Please visit our service page - https://www.kentcht.nhs.uk/service/intermediate-care/ for contact details and more information.

We are a multi-disciplinary team that includes nurses, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, dietitians, speech and language therapists and care managers. We carry out a full social care and nursing assessment that may include blood tests, observations and wound dressings. We assess and help patients achieve maximum independence in daily living activities, improve memory, concentration and ability to solve problems.

The team can assess for and provide suitable equipment and home adaptations to increase independence. We assess and devise individual exercise programmes to improve muscle strength, mobility and balance to improve abilities to perform daily activities, such as walking, climbing stairs and using limbs. We can assess the need and eligibility for supportive services and, if necessary, give advice and information on issues, such as benefits.

The team can also give advice and information on nutrition and diet to assist in recovery if a patient's weight has altered, or if they have a poor appetite or swallowing difficulties. Difficulties with communication and/or eating and drinking can be assessed by our team. We have teams in Ashford, Canterbury, Deal, Dover, Folkestone, Herne Bay, New Romney, Swale, Tenterden and Thanet.
