What is hospital discharge?

Hospital discharge is the process of an individual being sent from hospital to the comfort of their own home, or a nursing home.

Hospital discharge planning can feel long, drawn out and emotional for all family members involved. For many people, a period in hospital will leave them with lower fitness levels than before their admission. We are frequently asked by families for short term or long term home care after hospital discharge to help a loved one settle into a home routine once more.

Why consider home care after hospital discharge?

For whatever reason an individual is admitted, time in hospital involves long periods of relative inactivity which means people can be left feeling weak and unable to do as much for themselves as prior to admission. Some NHS community services are offered on discharge, but the services are short and only provided to those who will recover quickly.

We understand that you’ll want the process to be as smooth and stress-free as possible. That’s why we provide specialist care after hospital discharge for people who need the extra level of support.
