Service Aims

The aim of the Home from Hospital service is to prevent hospital readmission and premature admission to residential care. We can assist you with the support you need to keep your independence and help you regain your confidence after your discharge from hospital.

Accessing within 7 days

You can access this FREE service within 7 days of discharge. You can refer yourself, or ask the hospital or doctor to do this on your behalf. It doesn't matter if you live with someone. We can support you for about 4 weeks.


The support team has both paid staff and volunteers. Volunteers are vital to the Home from Hospital service, providing valuable befriending to help someone regain their confidence and independence. Volunteers receive the same training as paid staff and all our staff have current Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) Certificates.

Anyone who feels they would like to volunteer can request further information by contacting our Volunteer Coordinator.
