Oldham Older People's Intensive Home Treatment Service

The service is for people over 65 with either functional or organic mental health issues which have reached crisis point.

We provide treatment and close in support in a client’s own home on a short term basis with the aim of avoiding the distress of a hospital admission.

We also provide early follow-up and close support for clients discharged from Oldham’s older people wards.

Referrals to service can be made by any mental health professional. We also take referrals directly from non mental health services where the client is concurrently open to mental health,such as community matrons.
