Being discharged from hospital can be a daunting experience, especially for an elderly or disabled person. Our Home from Hospital service aims to make this process as stress free and comfortable as possible.
What is Home from Hospital?
When individuals are discharged from hospital they can often encounter a lengthy wait for transport home, sometimes arriving late in the evening; and if family aren’t around it can be a challenging and tiring event.
With our Home from Hospital service, we will send a qualified carer to meet and greet your relative at their home when first arriving back. Our team will always ensure the person being discharged has arrived home safely giving relatives peace of mind, this may mean contacting the hospital or waiting for hospital transport to arrive.
Our carers will help the service user in every way possible, including arranging medication, unpacking bags, help with washing and dressing, or simply turning the heating on and ensuring there is food for breakfast.
The initial coming home from hospital can be a taxing time for those needing support, that’s why we endeavour to support and make the readjustment to post-hospital life as smooth as possible.

We wanted to say a huge thank you for all the love, care and support of our dear mum DP. All the team at Carewatch were a huge part of mum’s life in her final years and it is thanks to you all that I had support from all of you while I was having treatment for breast cancer and mum received the wonderful care from all of you. This meant she was able to remain at home in her own environment where her friends and family could still be around he and not having to go into a nursing home and it helped me so much. All of you helped enormously to keep her cheerful and happy and she loved you allMrs M P Rayleigh
