Home from Hospital Service

 

Home Sweet Home

 

The aim of this service is to support vulnerable people who are returning home after a stay in hospital. 

 

The service is for those who have little or no support available, either formal or through friends and family. We can provide floating support for up to six months if required. Where longer term needs are identified we will refer onto an appropriate service should the client request us to do so.

 

We work closely with other community services to ensure a smooth return home and can help prevent unnecessary re-admission to hospital.  Support offered can include:

 

  • Ensuring suitable provisions are available on discharge
  • Initial welfare checks after discharge from hospital 
  • Arranging aids and adaptations (i.e. handrails or ramps)
  • Installing a Community Alarm and Key Safe
  • Arranging removals, setting up utilities and sourcing furniture and household items
  • Arranging maintenance, repairs and handyman services
  • Budgeting and debt advice
  • Managing correspondence
  • Advice on safety and security in the home
  • Benefits advice and support with applications
  • Liaising with other health and social care services to provide homecare services such as personal and domiciliary care. 
  • Advice and advocacy on welfare rights issues
  • Advice on Social Activities to reduce isolation

Each client receives an individual assessment and a support plan is created to highlight the outcomes they want to achieve.  Our support is ‘person centred’ and designed to promote independence and opportunity and to prevent re-admission back into hospital.
