Making sure you get home from hospital safely

Take home and settle provides immediate support to vulnerable older people upon discharge from hospital or attendance to A&E or the medical assessments unit. 

For more information call 01903 717 130.

The service is provided by us with our partner Guild Care to cover all West Sussex acute and community hospitals and East Surrey hospital for discharge into West Sussex.

The service is for older people who live on their own and have limited support. It is also for family and friend carers who may or may not live with their cared for.

The THS coordinator can support you during the journey home and with practical support once back at home. Support can include:

  • A safe journey home
  • Unpack your hospital bag
  • Check food in fridge is still in date
  • Do a small light local shop
  • Check your care line is working
  • Signpost or refer you to other support services including our support at home after hospital
  • Leaving you feeling safer and comfortable

This is a free of charge service for those using it.

When in hospital please speak to a member of staff who will make a referral to our on-site co-ordinators.
