How Home Care Can Ease Pressure On The NHS

There are many ways that Home Care can ease pressure and help to relieve delayed discharges.

Hospitals often face challenges in discharging patients who are medically stable, but require ongoing support. By utilising home care services, it is possible for patients to receive the necessary care in their own homes, freeing up hospital beds for those in critical need. This transition not only benefits the hospital by alleviating delayed discharges but it also promotes a more comfortable and familiar environment for the patients recovery.

Our care services prioritise individualised care plans tailored to each persons unique needs and preferences, and work closely with clients and their families to develop plans that address specific health concerns, mobility limitations, and other factors that all contribute to the client’s overall wellbeing.

Care Professionals play a crucial role in monitoring our clients health conditions and provide the necessary support to ensure their well being at home. This can include administering medications, monitoring vital signs, managing wound care, and assisting with mobility and rehabilitation exercises. By closely working with our clients in their home environment, Care Professionals can identify potential issues early and intervene before they escalate, reducing the risk of hospital readmissions.

Our care services also emphasise preventative measures that aim to maintain our clients health and keep them living well and independently all in the comfort of their own homes surrounded by their family, loved ones and familiar surroundings. This gives people a sense of independence and dignity and leaves them feeling more in control of their health care decisions.

By providing personalised, preventative and person-centered care, home care eases the pressure on the NHS, while also promoting better outcomes and experiences for clients and their families.
