This paper describes the establishment of a team of four nurses to provide a service in old age psychiatry along the lines of “Hospital At Home”. Its aim was to treat and nurse patients at home who otherwise would have to be admitted to hospital. An integral part of this initiative is the use of a problem orientated approach with integrated records. The work of the team over six years is reviewed and how it has evolved to provide a rapid response to difficult and fraught situations.
