"We have been using Right at Home for over a year, and I cannot recommend them highly enough. After months of trying to cope on his own after being in the hospital, we decided to a trial with home carers, and I have to say, it is the best decision we could have made. The carers are genuine, caring, compassionate and friendly people, and nothing is ever too much trouble for them whether it’s cooking, cleaning or even shopping. They have provided a lifeline to my uncle, and he has thrived under their care, and he classes every one as a friend and not his carers."

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 Reading & Wokingham 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 Reading & Wokingham-based CareGivers in your home, as it can be quite an adjustment to live independently after a stay in ICU.
