HOSPITAL TO HOME (Re-enablement)
You may have lost your independence following hospital admission due to illness, disability or a period in residential care. Our re-enablement service is for those in hospital waiting to return to their homes after discharge or already at home and needing extra support following discharge.
Your care will be tailored to your needs to help you regain those essential skills lost through illness or disability. Our re-enablement service will help you improve your quality of life while regaining independence, as well as eliminate unnecessary or prolonged hospital admission.
The length of this service may last from a few days after being discharged from hospital on your return home or through the entire discharge process.
We will liaise with other professionals involved in your care to ensure a smooth transition from hospital to your home. We will provide you with nurses, carers or support workers to best meet your identified needs.
For patients suffering with a life threatening illness our palliative care support can assist you to remain in the comfort of your own home, whatever your requirements.
Our well trained staff will offer you support and reassurance while respecting your wishes and showing discretion at all times. They will liaise with other professionals involved in your care in case of emergencies, as agreed in your care plan.
This support can also be tailored to provide your carers with a respite from caring for you. We endeavour to use only a small number of carers to ensure continuity of care. Our staff are well trained in last rites should the inevitable happen in your carer’s absence and will follow laid down care plans to ensure that your wishes are respected.
