Intensive Community Service (ICS) offers services provided through our three locality team bases and includes a mix of home visiting and unit-based acute treatment.
The services offer flexibility and are provided based on the service user’s choice. The ICS provides an alternative to hospital admission by:
providing community building-based acute care
offering home-based treatment
increasing the choices available to service users and ensuring that they receive care from staff who are consistent and known to them whilst receiving either home based treatment, unit based interventions or a combination of both as they choose
delivering a recovery focused service which will allow rapid access for service users to specialist care when they need it and a focus on returning service users to primary care
offering ncreased choice for service users by extending the role of acute community services to those service users over 65 years of age and deliver integrated home and community building- based intensive community care services.
