What is hospital to home care?

Jane | Client
"I was so pleased to have found Right at Home when mum needed extra support at home following a fall. I found the senior staff and carers to be kind, caring, hardworking and professional. I was kept informed with phone calls and follow up review meetings, as well as a daily report left on site."

What are reablement services?
Reablement is the term used in health and social care as an alternative name for short-term, after hospital care at home. Reablement services include help with daily activities that someone recovering from a hospital stay may not be able to complete alone. These may include washing, dressing and domestic tasks.
Our highly-rated home from hospital services can be short-term or long-term, depending on your requirements. Long periods spent in hospital can take their toll on mental health and self-confidence as it can feel like you are no longer independent. We believe that intermediate care between hospital discharge and a return to normal life is far preferable to staying in hospital, as the familiar surroundings of your home will encourage your recovery back to health and independent living.
Can you be discharged from ICU to home?
It is very rare to be discharged directly from an intensive care unit (ICU) to home. Usually, after spending time in an intensive care unit, patients will be transferred to a hospital ward before being discharged home. This interim hospital stay allows you to receive necessary aftercare and continued 24-hour support whilst at your most vulnerable. Only once you have been correctly assessed and received any necessary rehabilitation treatment will you be allowed to return to your home. At this stage, you may seek some support from our CareGivers in your home, as it can be quite an adjustment to live independently after a stay in ICU.
