- Maximise people’s independence by helping them to remain in their own homes, supported in their own communities.
- People who need a short-term health and social care rehabilitation intervention
- People at risk of hospital admission who can be safely supported and managed in their own home or care/nursing home.
- Placing the person at the centre of support planning activity
- Promoting wellbeing and independence and enabling self-care – by focusing on the person’s strengths, goals and what matters to them
- Multidisciplinary working by health and social care professionals.
- Integrated working can reduce barriers and duplication and focus on what’s most important to the person we are helping.
- MCR also plays a big part in helping to relieve the pressure on our hospitals and primary care system, by providing a quick and timely response to cases that may have previously ended up going to hospital, unnecessarily.
