One of the leading causes of hospital re-admission is inadequate support at home following discharge. The first 72 hours following discharge is critical to avoiding re-admissions. The support a person receives in this period is valuable due to change in physical codition such as increased fatigue, pain. There may also be changes to medication regimes, diet all of which may need assistance with activities of daily living. We offer a step down approach to reduce care in a few days and reverting back to visiting care when the person has recovered fully from the illness.
We understand that being in hospital can have an effect on a person’s confidence. Our Hospital to Home care service usually starts either prior to your discharge or just afterwards. A senior member of our team will meet you, your family and other health professionals to assess your needs. We are able to transport you home if required and help you get settled back in your own home.
