A new home from hospital pilot scheme called the Support at Home Service is being trialled across West Berkshire to assist people over the age of 65 who may be socially isolated and vulnerable. The service offers low level, practical, emotional and social support for up to three weeks after leaving hospital; collecting prescriptions, helping to arrange transport to appointments and organising pet care are some of the tasks the service can offer help with. Also, signposting to other services and groups in the local community such as lunch clubs, the Village Agent and car schemes. The service user does not have to be living alone or have no family or friends to receive Support at Home.
