Crisis assessment and intensive short-term treatment pathway for older people.

How this service can help you

The Crisis Resolution Home Treatment Team for older adults provides crisis assessment and intensive treatment pathway for older people that includes:

  • Crisis intervention / intensive support to prevent unnecessary hospital admissions
  • Integrated services to promote recovery from mental illness, early intervention, intensive home treatment, therapy and support focussing on preventing avoidable admission to hospital and facilitating earlier discharge from mental health hospital beds.

Crisis Resolution and Home Treatment is a time-limited intervention (initially up to six weeks) and, depending upon clinical need, it may be necessary to refer patients to other pathway teams within Older People’s Mental Health Services to ensure patients receive long-term treatment and therapy as appropriate. The teams operate from 8am-8pm, seven days a week, including bank holidays.
