Outcomes for service users
As we provide person-centred care delivered via individual care plans, it is difficult to generalise on outcomes for service users with wide-ranging needs. However, we are acutely aware of the need to deliver value for money and to produce meaningful information to demonstrate that we provide high quality, sustainable services that reduce long term costs for each individual.
Below are some of the ways that we define positive outcomes for the service users receiving different types of support, care and rehabilitation services at The Richardson Partnership for Care.
Intensive rehabilitation for adults with acquired brain injury
Sustained increased functional ability, improved emotional well-being and reduced incidence of challenging or aggressive behaviour are all positive outcomes and may be achieved over a period of as little as 6 – 12 months. We can also measure outcomes in terms of the type of facility to which service users are discharged. Our intensive rehabilitation service for adults with acquired brain injuries formally started in The Mews in December 2010.
