How Home Instead Enfield is Helping Prevent Bed Blocking

We're tackling a big issue for the NHS—bed blocking—directly.

What is Bed Blocking?

Bed Blocking happens when patients can’t leave the hospital because there isn’t enough care for them afterwards. It’s a big problem that not only puts pressure on our hospitals but also affects the health of patients. 

In Enfield, with our lively community, we see this problem a lot, and it’s clear we need smart ways to solve it.

Home Instead Enfield's Approach to Bed Blocking

At Home Instead Enfield, we’re on the front lines, working with the community and local hospitals like North Middlesex University Hospital, Chase Farm Hospital, The Kings Oak Hospital, and The Cavell Hospital. We want to make sure everyone in our town gets the care they need.

Our home care services are key to stopping people from needing to go to the hospital when it’s not necessary. We offer care that’s just right for each person, dealing with health issues early and in the comfort of their own homes.

This kind of care keeps our community healthier and helps make more hospital beds available for those who really need them.
