Preventing Hospitalisation

How Home Instead Eastbourne and Hailsham Support Clients' Health at Home

At Home Instead Eastbourne and Hailsham, we provide more than just care. Our approach to care at home helps clients manage long-term health conditions, prevents unnecessary hospitalisations and supports the NHS's five-year plan for community-based care at home.

Here’s how we make a difference:

Early detection and intervention: a case study

Recently, we encountered a situation that highlights the importance of our vigilant care and health monitoring:

  1. A client reported feeling unwell. This client felt dizzy, sick, lost appetite for food and wasn’t usual self.
  2. We promptly contacted the client’s GP, resulting in a paramedic visit, though initial checks found nothing alarming.
  3. Our Care Professional’s continued to observe and report ongoing symptoms.
  4. Our management team, reviewing these reports, noticed similarities from previous experience with another client who had been diagnosed with low sodium.
  5. We suggested this possibility to the GP, who we pressed to arrange blood tests for the client.
  6. The tests confirmed low sodium levels, allowing for early intervention and home-based treatment.

This proactive approach prevented a potential hospital admission, as severe cases of low sodium often require intravenous treatment in a hospital setting and a short-term hospital stay.
