Short Term Support and Rehabilitation Team

We provide short-term support to help people recover or cope after a decline in health, an injury or an illness.

We encourage adults to achieve maximum independence, health and wellbeing. Services may include:

  • Rebuilding or improving your strength and mobility through exercise
  • Learning or re-learning skills
  • Providing equipment, such as a raised toilet seat, or minor adaptations to your home, such as grab rails or stair rails
  • Support to help you manage personal care (washing and dressing) and other daily tasks such as meal preparation
  • Advice and referrals to other services as needed.

The people we can help are:

  • Residents in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, or registered patients at a GP based in the Borough.
  • Adults, aged 18 and up.
  • In need of intensive therapy and rehabilitation or social care support.
  • Well enough to be supported at home.
  • In need of short-term help (up to six weeks; often as little as one-two weeks or less).
  • Willing to give consent to a support plan, with realistic jointly-agreed goals. This plan could include specialist therapy and rehabilitation services.
  • People who cannot consent can involve their friends and family, advocates, or other professionals in the decision to accept services.

We aim to:

  • Provide safe, effective and appropriate social care, physiotherapy and occupational therapy to meet the needs of people living at home
  • Prevent unnecessary admissions and re-admissions to hospital
  • Help hospitals to discharge people in a timely manner
  • Reduce the number of people admitted into long-term care
  • Rehabilitate people to reduce the number suffering from falls.
