Hospital Discharge and Community Team

What does it do?

We offer practical and emotional help following a stay in hospital, focusing on older people who do not have other support, such as family or friends nearby.  We can pick up prescriptions and collect groceries or change the sheets on a bed.  Our volunteers will also stay for a chat, maybe watch a bit of television together, to help rebuild a person's confidence.

We can also help people take steps to improve their health and wellbeing and give them the confidence to continue on their own with the support of other services.
