Enablement Health Beds

We are aware of the significant pressure on health budgets and the need to keep NHS beds free for acute patients.


As a leading provider of specialist care for elderly people, including complex dementia, nursing and enduring mental health needs, we have the expertise and trained staff available to provide enablement health beds to people needing short term support. These transitional placements in to the warm, caring and secure environment of a specialist care facility have proved to be very successful  with our NHS partners and warmly received by our short stay residents.

Working in partnership with local Trusts, we have recently introduced a number of enablement health beds for elderly patients across a number of scenarios:

  • Patients who are ready for discharge but are awaiting a full social services package to be put in place before going home (potentially being de-skilled and losing confidence by over staying in hospital)
  • Patients who are on the road to full recovery but need some additional physiotherapy and/or occupational therapy support on a short term basis
    to rebuild confidence and skills before going home
  • Patients who require a long-term placement who can be cared for in an enablement health bed rather than block a badly needed NHS bed while
    their permanent placement is being finalised

We also provide residential, respite, nursing and palliative care services for people with progressive neurological illnesses and complex dementias.
