Targeted Intervention Service
The Targeted Intervention Service can help and support you to regain independence so that you can remain at home or to return home after a period in hospital or a residential home. You will need to be assessed to see if you are eligible for the service.
It is a short-term service (up to 6 weeks) and is free of charge but if after this time, you still require care you may have to pay for it but you can ask for a financial assessment to see how much (if any) you have to contribute to the charge.
You will be supported by a team consisting of Occupational Therapists, Social Workers, Assessing & Reviewing Officers, Therapy & Social Care Assistants and Targeted Intervention Service Assistants and if necessary access to other professionals (e.g. nurses). They will work with you in your own home with a plan designed and agreed for your needs, with actions and goals for you to aim to achieve. Hopefully at the end of the period you will have achieved these but should you still require some level of ongoing support then these will be discussed with you before the programme ends. If your needs are long term your case will be referred to Planned Care and Support Team and the Independent sector will be asked to provide your care. There is a charge for this but you will be offered a financial assessment to see what (if any) of this charge that you have to pay.
How to access the service?
You can refer yourself to the Single Point of Access who will take an initial assessment. Their telephone number is 01545 574000.
If Targeted Intervention is seen as the most appropriate service to meet your needs then someone from the Service will visit you at home.
You can also be referred to the Service either by your GP or Community Nurse.
If you are in hospital, the staff looking after you may refer you.
