Could you spare an hour or two a week to offer some practical support to an older person?
The Home from Hospital service provides practical support for up to six weeks following a stay in hospital, enabling older people to regain independence in their own homes. No personal care (washing, dressing, feeding etc) is included, tasks may include:
- Light housework
- Collecting prescriptions
- Support to attend healthcare appointments
- Emotional support and companionship
- Signposting to other services
What our clients say:
"Home from Hospital is a wonderful service .....I don't really know how I would have managed without it."
"Brilliant! Wish I could have kept the volunteer for longer."
"Unbelievable support from your team!"
