Take home and settle

What does it do?

This service enables older people who have attended Accident and Emergency, at either Pembury or Maidstone Hospital, to go home rather than be admitted back in to hospital having leaghty waits for ambulances.

It serves older residents of Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells with an emphasis on those who live alone or who are carers. It helps to facilitate a safe discharge from hospital, accompany patients home and ensures they are safely settled in.
