Knoll House provides short-term rehabilitation for a period of usually two to three weeks, but can be for up to six weeks. People primarily stay at Knoll House following discharge from hospital, or to prevent an unnecessary admission to hospital. The ethos of Knoll House is to support people to regain their independence and promote independent living skills.
The short-term rehabilitation is a joint partnership between Brighton and Hove City Council and the Sussex Community NHS Trust who work together to provide co-ordinated care. Consultants for elderly care, GPs and a community mental health nurse visit the service. On the premises residents receive support from a social work team, social care staff, medical and nursing staff, physiotherapy and occupational therapy staff.
Knoll House is a two storey building with a passenger lift for level access throughout the building. All the bedrooms are single occupancy with ensuite facilities. All lounges have kitchen and dining facilities. Residents are also able to use a conservatory and landscaped garden area. A separate kitchen and gym area is available for residents to be supported to work towards their agreed goals for independence.
