When admitted to hospital, you may look forward to returning to your own home, to recuperate in the place where you feel most comfortable and relaxed. With increased care requirements, you may fear that you will not be able to go home, and instead will need to move in to a nursing or residential home.
Our hospital to home service can enable you to return home after a stay in hospital, we can help you to settle back in to your familiar surroundings. Whether you require a high level of care, or just some support with activities of daily living during your recuperation period, we can provide a Nurse, Healthcare Assistant or Support Worker to assist you.
Is this service the right one for me?
Our high quality hospital to home service is most suited to an individual who is:
- Currently an in-patient in hospital, wishing to return home immediately after being discharged
- Due to be admitted to hospital and will require support after they have been discharged
- In need of practical help or advice about returning home after leaving hospital
- Already at home and in need of extra support following a recent stay in hospital
Whatever your circumstance, we can offer a service tailored to meet your individual needs.
In our experience, recuperation can be quicker when in the comfortable and familiar surroundings of home, with loved ones and pets nearby to aid the process. When you are in comfortable surroundings it is easier to learn or relearn skills and adapt to any physical limitations that may have developed.
With individualised care, there is an audience of one – and things will be done the way you want them. There will be no upheaval and no disturbance of routine.
Living at home promotes independence and motivates the spirit, especially important in the initial weeks adjusting to life after being in hospital.
We understand that hospitals are not always able to give substantial notice before arranging your discharge.
Should you need us to respond quickly, our service can usually commence within 48 hours of your initial enquiry. Our Care at Home Team can liaise and work closely with a range of health professional such as Doctors, Nurses, Social Workers and Hospital Discharge Teams to ensure you have a smooth transition from hospital to home.
