Hospital to Home provides a transport service to enable a timely safe discharge from hospital. Support is then provided to ensure that the patient is settled at home with further support provided to secure long term support from Age UK Leeds services or other third sector organisations.
The Hospital to Home service provides support to Leeds residents aged 60+ who have attended A&E or had a short stay in hospital on the assessment units at St James Hospital in Leeds.
