New service models such as intermediate care may find it difficult to involve older people in services that are time‐limited and unfamiliar. Their staff may perceive themselves as having little time to sustain or build relationships with voluntary and community‐based organisations engaged in intermediate care. This article shows how such challenges can be met by drawing on the experiences of voluntary sector projects involved in intermediate care services.
