The trust works jointly with North Yorkshire social services to provide an intermediate care facility.
Suitable clients are able to benefit from a proactive rehabilitation programme for up to six weeks.
This involves occupational therapy and physiotherapy, and is supported by a team of dedicated healthcare assistants who initiative the programme. The day unit has facilities for up to ten patients at a time to attend for day care and is available on Monday and Wednesday.
