Hospital Aftercare Service

What does it do?

If someone is unable to leave hospital because they have no family or other support locally, where it is appropriate, we can take them home and provide support. 

Sometimes a simple practical task can be preventing an older person being discharged from hospital - perhaps they were rushed into A&E in their nightclothes and have no suitable clothes to wear for the journey home.  Or maybe their home is in an unhygienic condition and needs a deep clean to make it safe.
