"All the staff at Right at Home Oxford have been delightful. They managed to set up care at short notice for my aunt, increased it when requested and quickly adjusted when requirements changed due to hospital admission/discharge. The coordinator has a can-do attitude and never makes you feel that you're a nuisance. "

You can find out more information from Oxfordshire County Council regarding care after hospital discharge.

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 in Oxford 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. At Right at Home Oxford, 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 Oxford-based CareGivers in your home, as it can be quite an adjustment to live independently after a stay in ICU.
