Rehabilitation at Home Team

The Rehabilitation at Home Team aims to maximise the potential and capability of adults to achieve independence through intensive, short term therapy interventions, delivered in the home, following unplanned orthopaedic surgery at Liverpool University Hospitals Aintree site.

This team supports adult patients following a fracture, neck or femur surgery from the Orthopaedic wards at Aintree site. They aim to maximise the potential and capability of patients to achieve independence through intensive, short term therapy interventions, delivered in the home.

The team select patients from Aintree wards according to agreed set criteria, which are flexible in order to meet the needs of Aintree. The patients move onto this pathway according to team capacity and thus the service does not operate a waiting list.

Patients return home as early as two to three days post operation. Service provides occupational therapy/physiotherapy assistant input in the home and loans equipment to patients for short term use.

The service covers the Liverpool city boundary, South Sefton and Knowsley.

Service hours are Monday to Friday, 8:00am to 4:30pm with individualised appointments outside these hours if necessary. The Rehab at Home Team undertakes needs led weekend visits.
