Integrum Aged Care + is a new service being trialed by Silver Chain to support people with complex chronic conditions, keeping them safe at home and out of hospital.
Integrum Director, Matthew Franklyn, said the new service’s focus is on empowering clients to maximise control of their health and confidence in managing their chronic conditions.
“Integrum will provide wrap around care for our clients with chronic conditions who would benefit from an extra level of care and responsiveness.
“From March 2018, we will be operating a trial based in Belmont for clients who are over 65 years of age, have multiple chronic conditions and have been hospitalised between one and five times in the previous year.
“Through this new service, clients will have access to a dedicated general practice with transport options, case management through a Registered Nurse, and aged care, home nursing, rapid response care and family support.
“Integrum also includes future planning and an exercise physiology component.”
Integrum’s Clinical Director, Dr Daryl Kroschel, said Integrum offers clients a unique experience where they can spend an extended amount of time with a multi-disciplinary team, who work collectively with individuals on their care goals in collaboration with the client’s existing care providers.
“These goals have a common feature of living at home; and crucial in achieving this is the extension of the GP’s scope into the home, within a networked care model.”
