Independent living > Home from hospital services

Home from hospital services provide extra support to elderly people who have been discharged home from hospital following surgery, ill health, or an accident. They are short term aftercare services for people when they return home from hospital, and can offer flexible short term practical help to assist with most day-to-day tasks, such as emotional support, food preparation, shopping, laundry, light domestic duties, and help with claiming benefits and form filling. Most services last for no more than a few weeks, and are provided for older people by different organisations such as Health services, Adult Social Care Services, voluntary agencies and commercial companies. Discharge from hospital services help older people to regain confidence and re-adjust to living at home.
