2015 04 22 - MIWhat is Maximising Independence?

Maximising Independence provides therapy based rehabilitation and re-enablement. Patients are supported to regain their independence following illness or injury, supported to manage their Long Term conditions and to optimise their health and wellbeing.

Maximising Independence aims to reduce unnecessary hospital admissions, prevent premature admission to residential and nursing care homes, promote independent living and wellbeing in community settings.

Maximising Independence is provided by Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, Speech and Language Therapists and therapy support workers.

Maximising Independence will work closely with Facilitated and Supported Discharge to accelerate safe discharges from hospital.
