What is hospital discharge?

Hospital discharge is the process of  your loved one moving from hospital into the comfort of their own home, or a nursing home with a care package in place.

Hospital discharge planning can feel long, drawn out and emotionally wearing 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 back into their usual home routine.

Why consider home care after hospital discharge?

Whatever the reason your loved one is admitted, time in hospital involves long periods of relative inactivity which means that people can be left feeling weak and unable to do as much for themselves as they were able to prior to admission. Some NHS community services are offered upon hospital discharge, but the services are short and only provided to those who are likely to 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 and extra level of support. Our hospital discharge care plans are tailored to your individual needs and are informed by a wealth of experience in providing specialist, professional care.
