There is open visiting between the hours of 2pm until 7pm.
New times will be from 3pm – 7:30pm as of the 02 January 2020. This is to accommodate the positioned rest period on the ward and to help manage patient fatigue levels, however, The ward will continue to be flexible in supporting individual circumstances.
Whilst we welcome and recognise the importance of family and friends in the recovery process, our priority is providing the best possible care and outcomes for our patients. Therefore, we will tailor our visiting hours to suit their needs and although we are very happy for relatives and friends to visit, we would ask that you are mindful of the intense therapy input that is required and subsequent fatigue they may feel.
Please speak to the Ward Manager/Nurse in charge for details of the planned care for your relative.

Ongoing care at home
Discharge planning is the process of preparing you to live independently in the home to help maintain the benefits of your rehabilitation. It begins early during your admission and involves you, your family, and our team. You will be discharged soon after your goals have been reached.
Discharge planning can include making sure you have a safe place to live after discharge or deciding what care and/or special equipment you will need. We may have to arrange for more rehabilitation services or for other services to support your discharge. Examples include the Community Stroke Team, meal delivery, care agencies and the Stroke Association.
