Support to move home from hospital

The Home from Hospital service is based at Weston General Hospital and provides help and support for patients to move back home safely after a stay at the hospital.

Examples of the help we provide include:
  • Making sure your home is suitable for you to move back into - for example that it is clean and warm
  • Carrying out essential shopping to make sure you have the things you need at home
  • Making sure you have appropriate clothes ready for your discharge
  • Contacting other agencies or services that can help
  • Helping you to re-instate or make new claims for welfare benefits
  • Helping you to sort out debts or other financial issues
  • Helping you to access adaptations and equipment like handrails, key safes and community alarms - to make your home safer for you
  • Helping you to find opportunities to overcome loneliness and isolation

The Home From Hospital Service is funded by North Somerset Council
