Are you worried about coping at home after a stay in hospital?

Our Home from Hospital service provides trained volunteers to help older people regain their independence and confidence for up to six weeks following a stay in hospital. The help is flexible, based around what you need and may include:

  • Shopping
  • Light housework
  • Collecting prescriptions
  • Support to attend healthcare appointments
  • Emotional support
  • Signposting to other services

It does not include any type of personal care.

The service is available for people aged over 55, who are resident in Worcestershire and who are unable to cope independently in the short term or who do not have other home support from family or friends.

There is no charge for this service, which is fully funded by Worcestershire County Council.
