Integrated Independence team
We are a team of health and social care staff who aim to support people to maintain their independence at home. We work across Homerton Hospital’s A&E department and wards, and also in people’s homes.
We can help to avoid hospital admission, support people when being discharged from hospital, and work towards rehabilitation goals when at home.
We can provide appropriate domiciliary support through tailored input from independence assistants, therapists, social workers, nursing and medical input; dependent on the needs of the service user, for up to 6 weeks.
Any on-going need will be discussed and arranged prior to the end of our time with the service user.
