Derbyshire Home from Hospital aims to support patients with limited or no family/neighbourhood support network. The service is provided by a combination of staff and volunteers across Derbyshire (not Derby City) and is free of charge.
Home from Hospital will support people at home by undertaking the following:
We can help support with contacting local GP practices, care coordinators, social workers etc, and can alert relevant professionals if someone is struggling to cope at home. This earlier intervention can prevent some people from returning into hospital and promotes independence at home.
If you or someone you know would benefit from the Home from Hospital support service, please contact the general office to make a referral.
