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

Our Home from Hospital service can provide you with help to regain your independence and build your confidence following a stay in hospital. The help is flexible and based around what you need, such as:

Home from Hosp

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

Please note that this service does not include any type of personal care.

The service is available for anyone aged over 55, who is resident in Worcestershire and feels that they 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, as it is currently fully funded by Worcestershire County Council.
