After hospital

If you've just come out of hospital, you may need more support than usual while you're recovering at home. Perhaps you've lost confidence in walking up the stairs after a fall, or need to find easier ways of using your kitchen with a broken arm. 

Everybody's needs are different, so in order to find out what kind of help you need from us you'll need to have a community care assessment. One of our enablement workers may be able to spend time with you for a while to help you get things back to normal. 

If you are not coping at home or you need more intensive support, your case manager may talk to you about rehabilitation care. This type of recuperative care is 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, in a safe environment. Not everyone will need this level of care and support, so it's important that you talk us through what you particularly need. If you start rehabilitation care, you and your therapist will plan a treatment programme that will work for you. 

The NHS have lots of information about what should happen when you're released from hospital and what happens if you need ongoing medical care.
