Maidstone & Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust ARE WORKING IN PARTNERSHIP WITH HILTON NURSING PARTNERS TO provide a ‘Stroke Rehabilitation at home’ Service.

Maidstone & Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust have commissioned Hilton Nursing Partners to work jointly with the Stroke Therapists, providing both care and therapy following a stroke, in a rehabilitation at home programme.

It is well recognised that people make a good recovery with the right support in their own home during what can be an anxious time for you and your family. The team, comprising of specialist therapists and trained assistants, will work closely with you and your family to discuss and plan each step of the transition between hospital to your recovery at home.

The service combines both the support from the Hilton team for your daily care and therapy needs, alongside and guided by NHS specialist therapy assessment and recommendation, both initially and throughout your journey. The Hilton team will provide home visits based on the level of support needed and support with recommended therapy, working with you and your family to achieve your goals and optimal levels of independence.

Step 1

The hospital team will discuss the pathway with you and plan for your discharge home. The hospital therapists will assess and arrange any equipment you may need. This may include visiting your home to assess your equipment needs.

Step 2

Day of Discharge from Hospital- A Hilton representative will meet you at home and ensure you settle back home with everything you need. They will explain the service and complete an assessment. Your individual therapy and support plan will commence.

Step 3

You will receive daily visits from Hilton staff based on your abilities, you may also have visits or online appointments from the Maidstone Hospital Stroke Therapists.

Step 4

Assessments will be completed throughout your recovery. Daily visits and support may change in response to any improvement or increase if needed, until you meet your optimal level of recovery.

Step 5

Before the end of the service if the assessment has identified an ongoing need for support, Hilton will complete a referral for the most appropriate service. This may be a referral for social care or to additional community rehabilitation teams. Once a decision has been made on your future needs the Hilton Partners will pass on your care to an appropriate provider to support your next phase of care. The Hilton team will ensure you are in control and supported throughout your recovery journey
