Home from Hospital Scheme

What does it do?

Referrals can be made by a hospital member of staff, who will contact us on
your behalf.

We will assign a volunteer to you who will hopefully meet with you in hospital,
and arrange to be at your house to welcome you home on discharge.

The same volunteer will support you for the next few weeks.

Who it is for?

Are you 50 or older?
Are you about to be discharged from hospital?
Are you worried about returning home, wondering if you’ll cope?
Would you like a little bit of help to support your return home?

Then maybe we can help…
