Coming home after a stay in hospital is a welcome relief, we all prefer our own home. However, many decisions need to be made and for someone who has lost some of their independence, it can be a difficult process for them or their family.
We regularly support people to come home, either as a rapid response or as a more planned discharge. Either way we understand the importance of getting it right.
We can help with:
Discharge planning, care planning and advice on changes to the home environment
Ongoing care and help at home, to assist with the process of orientation and where appropriate regaining precious independence
Liaising with community professionals, such as district nurses, physiotherapists etc
Planning the duration of support and linking with families or other support structures
As all our services, we can chat this through with you and explain in easy terms how we can help.
We are here to help when you need us
Our home from hospital care services
A qualified, skilled carer can transport you home from the care facility, and provides essential support during an often stressful time.
The first 72 hours following a procedure or hospital stay represent a critical and vulnerable time for the patient, often involving a new diagnosis and changes in daily habits, required medications, meal regimens, rehab exercises and more. Non-medical home care provides the monitoring, reminders and emotional support to help the individual recover successfully at home.
