If you or a family member are leaving hospital and don’t have someone nearby, we can help by:
- meeting you when you arrive home
- potentially moving beds downstairs
- testing any personal alarm systems or hospital equipment
- checking that you have access to your medication
- shopping for necessities such as tea, milk and bread
- checking that your heating is working.
If you can’t leave hospital because your home is not suitable for your health needs, we can help.
We can carry out minor alterations to help you live as independently as possible at home and to help prevent readmission to hospital. For example, we can move beds downstairs, or fit grab rails or key safes.
All our staff and volunteers have enhanced Disclosure and Barring (DBS) checks.
