We understand the considerable benefits of living independently in one’s home and the positive effects this has on a person’s quality of life. 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; our objective is to provide the care necessary to make this possible.
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 atmosphere.
Whether you require a high level of care, or just some support with activities of daily living during your recuperation period, we can provide Healthcare Assistant, Support Worker or a Nurse 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 or your preference, we can offer a service suitable to meet your individual needs.
Our post-operative care is usually planned in advance of your hospital admission. This ensures that every element of your care package is organised to commence from the moment that you are discharged from hospital.
As part of our hospital to home service, we will not pay the cost for your transport transfer from hospital to your house, but we could be able to call or book a taxi for you, making sure you feel comfortable at all times. We can arrange for a Nurse, Healthcare Assistant or Support Worker to meet you at the hospital and, where required, 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, we will ensure that a full risk assessment is carried out in your home to make sure it is completely safe for your return.
Our service is tailored to meet your individual requirements. Should you have any specific care needs, we can ensure that your Carers have received bespoke training in preparation for your discharge from 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 often commence within 48 hours of your initial enquiry. Our Homecare service Team can liaise and work closely with your G.P, hospital Doctors, Nurses, Discharge Teams and Social Workers to ensure you have a smooth transition from hospital to home.
