Short-term support for older people living with long-term health conditions.
What does the service offer?
We can help a older person take steps to improve their health and wellbeing and ensure they are confident to continue on their own with the support of other services.
Who is it for?
It runs Monday to Friday and is available throughout Northamptonshire for anyone who is registered with a GP in the county. We offer practical and emotional help following a stay in hospital, focusing on people who do not have other networks of support
We work with older people to reduce the likelihood of them being re-admitted to hospital and to help them regain their independence as far as possible.
How much does it cost?
There is no charge for this service.
