What it is
The Community Rehabilitation Team (CRT) provides a home-based, multi-disciplinary service for older people and adults with a disability. It gives advice about managing disabilities on a long term basis, and what service users can do to try to avoid unnecessary admission to hospital/long-term care.
The team works closely with other agencies, health and social care departments and organisations to ensure that patient care is co-ordinated.
Anyone who is eligible will be assessed by the team to determine the correct help and support.
Who is eligible
- People over 16 years with complex physical health needs;
- Those with a physical or functional impairment which has potential for improvement through rehabilitation;
- The person is able to be maintained safely within the home setting.
How to access the service
The team accepts self-referrals through the phone number above, as well as referrals from other agencies or health/social work departments. They will then arrange for an assessment to be carried out.
Preventing falls amongst older people and those with a physical disability can help to avoid unnecessary hospital admissions. For more information about this, please select a the link on the right hand side of this page.
