- Recommendation ID
Duration and intensity of home-based intermediate care:- How effective and cost effective are different approaches, in terms of duration and intensity, to providing home-based intermediate care for adults?
- Any explanatory notes
Why this is important:- There is some evidence that people who used home-based intermediate care found their care ended too suddenly at 6 weeks, and poor communication compounded this negative perception. The optimal time limit can differ depending on people's health and care and support needs.
Studies of comparative designs are needed to assess the effectiveness and cost effectiveness of different intensities and durations of home-based intermediate care for people with a range of care needs.
