Unveiling a new health facility

Thursday, December 8, 2005

Older people who need further rehabilitation following a spell in hospital now benefit from a new facility thanks to Sheffield South West Primary Care Trust (SSWPCT).

 

Heeley MP Meg Munn was on hand to unveil SSWPCT’s new Community Rehabilitation Unit, at the Beech Hill site in Norfolk Park. This facility has a dedicated team to help older people who need extra care and support following a stay in hospital.

 

This city-wide service allows for a more individual-focused rehabilitation programme, so patients can return to their homes safely and as quickly as possible. It includes a new therapy treatment room, rehabilitation kitchen and bathroom with patients enjoying en-suite facilities in their single rooms. The multi-disciplinary team is made up of occupational therapists, physiotherapists, speech and language therapists, dietetics, therapy assistants and a social worker.

 

As well as the Community Rehabilitation Unit, Beech Hill also continues to provide respite care to support both patients and their carers.

 

Anne Bartholomew, Clinician Lead at the Community Rehabilitation Unit, said: “This is an exciting new development at Beech Hill to support people in their return home. Many older people may be fit enough to leave hospital but not quite ready to go back into their home environment - they may need physio for example. We are here to provide high quality care to those people and to help them regain their independence and quality of life before being discharged home.”

 

Meg Munn said: “I am delighted to open this new service and see the improvements that have taken place. I am sure that all those involved in giving and receiving respite and rehabilitation care at Beech Hill will see the benefits.”
