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:

  • Shopping
  • 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!"
