Care Home Intervention Team (Croydon)

How our service can help you

The Care Home Intervention Service (Croydon) support people aged 65 and over, whose behaviour has become challenging in the context of a dementia or mental illness and currently living in a residential or nursing home setting.

Our aim is to provide a community in reach programme for older adults.

We work on the understanding that community providers have a responsibility to deliver the level of care necessary to meet the needs of people who challenge services. We provide a structured and collaborative assessment and formulation of challenging behaviour as well as providing learning opportunities for care staff.

The service will reduce the prescribing of anti-psychotic medication by engaging care home staff in methods of personalised care planning including the deployment of non-pharmacological management strategies and opportunities for engagement in meaningful activities for behavioural disorder.

We aim to complement other community health services and work collaboratively when appropriate with other agencies for the benefit of service users and their carers
