Hospital to Home Care
If you are admitted to hospital, you will look forward to returning to your own home, to recuperate in the place where you feel most comfortable and relaxed. But 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.
Through our hospital to home service we can help you to return home, after a stay in hospital, with a dedicated carer to assist you to settle back into 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 through our hospital to home service, .
Our high quality hospital to home service is most suited to individuals who are:
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 hospital to home service tailored to meet your individual needs.
Our post-operative care is usually planned around the time of your hospital admission. This ensures that every element of your care package is organised to start from the moment that you are discharged from hospital.
As part of our hospital to home and post-operative care service, we will support you with your transfer from hospital, making sure you always feel comfortable. We can arrange for one of our care staff to meet you at the hospital and, where required, we can organise transport on your behalf.
We can liaise with the hospital discharge team to ensure that any required equipment has been installed in your home, for example hoisting equipment. In addition, one of our client care managers will ensure that a full risk assessment is carried out in your home to make sure it is completely safe for your return.
Our post-operative care service is tailored to you. Should you have any specific care needs, we can ensure that your post-operative carers have received bespoke training in preparation for your discharge from hospital.
