The Arc

The Assessment and rehabilitation centre (ARC) is based in a quiet residential area of Blackpool and offers social care rehabilitation for people who need a short period of intensive support in a 24 hour setting.


Support is accessed via an assessment of need from an Adult Social Care or Health professional.  It is available to people who are discharged from hospital, any residential or nursing home, or to meet the needs of people who are at home to prevent an escalation of need.

Both social care and health professionals work to provide individually tailored support programmes for anything from a few days to six weeks to help people maximise their independence.

The ARC will help you try new ways of doing things, build up your strength, resilience and confidence and support you in accessing support solutions when you move on from our service.

The team involves rehabilitation support workers, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, falls prevention workers and nurses, who all work together to identify goals to promote independence.

At the end of your stay you will be given the information you need to make informed long term decisions about ongoing support at home.
