Manager: Joan Arrowsmith

Ledbury Intermediate Care Unit & Minor Injuries Unit provides short stay nursing rehabilitation for up to 14 patients requiring step down care following surgery or medical intervention. Typical patients have previously been in hospital or step up care following an illness or incident at home which requires some stabilisation or therapy input prior to returning home.

The intermediate care unit is located within the Ledbury Community Health Centre in the market town of Ledbury. Shaw Healthcare operates the service in partnership with Herefordshire Clinical Commissioning Group with a dedicated team of experienced nursing staff supported by GP’s, occupational and physiotherapy and other healthcare professionals.

Activities

Our activity schedules aim to both mentally and physically stimulate participants, they place emphasis on therapeutic enjoyment and provide opportunities to be social. Activities such as crosswords and puzzles improve concentration, short / long term memory and reasoning skills whilst crafts and other gentle activities can improve mobility, release tension and help relaxation. We offer emotional support through activity choices and also acknowledge successes and achievements.

We like to celebrate birthdays, special anniversaries, regional / national events, religious observances, cultural activities and encourage trips away from the care homes such as meals out, shows or theatre and shopping trips.

Menu

Our chef prepares all meals on site using fresh, locally sourced produce and can cater for health dietary requirements such as diabetes and also for other cuisine needs. The menu rotates on a monthly basis and features a variety of cuisine options. The table below reflects a typical week of evening meal options at a Shaw care home.

There are communal dining areas which are light and airy where you can socialise or have the option of eating in your room.
