Hospital Discharge Scheme

Hospital Discharge Scheme

What does it do?

Your hospital discharge team can arrange for us to carry out a home assessment. We’ll offer advice and practical assistance to allow you to return home in safety and comfort.

Who it is for?

We provide advice and practical support to older people who can’t return home following hospital treatment due to changes in their circumstances. This might be due to reduced mobility, problems with bathing or difficulties getting in and out of their home.

Where it is available?

Local service (Forest Heath, Ipswich, St Edmundsbury, Suffolk Coastal, Waveney, Babergh, Mid Suffolk).

What it costs:

Our initial advice is always free.
