Easing the NHS Strain: How Home Instead Supports Timely Hospital Discharges

In the midst of an ever-growing strain on the NHS, a predicament has emerged in our local area – the challenge of patients being ready to depart from hospital care, yet finding themselves delayed due to inadequate support at home. 

This issue not only prolongs recovery for those individuals but also places additional burdens on our healthcare system. A solution lies in accessible, reliable home care, and that’s where Home Instead shines, offering a bridge from hospital to home care for those in need.

Continue recovery smoothly and safely in the comfort of home

Home Instead, as a dedicated home care provider, steps into this gap, offering local residents an essential service that not only benefits patients but also alleviates pressure on the NHS. Our Care Professionals are trained to deliver the specialist care required post-hospitalisation, ensuring that once a patient leaves the hospital, they can continue their recovery smoothly and safely in the comfort of their own home.

Starting from the initial call through to crafting a bespoke care plan, we at Home Instead place comprehensive and compassionate care at the forefront of our services. Understandably, transitioning from hospital care to home can be challenging for many, involving various needs such as medication management, personal care, and even specialised home assistance with tasks like operating a slide hoist rotunda.

Our care packages are tailored to meet the unique needs of every individual, paying close attention to intricate details such as assisting with catheters or stoma bags. Our Care Professionals receive specific training to handle such requirements with the utmost consideration and proficiency.

The beauty of our service is its flexibility – care can often be arranged quickly, catering to urgent needs and unforeseen circumstances. This adaptability ensures that no person has to endure an unnecessary extension of their hospital stay due to a lack of adequate care at home.

Home Instead goes beyond just meeting the basic needs. We’re committed to ensuring our clients feel safe, comfortable, and valued in their own spaces. Sometimes, our care involves the support of two professionals, especially when using equipment like a slide hoist rotunda. Such attention to detail underscores our commitment to providing not just care, but dignity and independence to our clients.
