The service offers practical support such as help with shopping, cleaning, GP appointments and ordering medication. The service lasts for 2-3 weeks.
Our experienced staff work to ensure that they are settled in at home as soon as possible after being discharged from hospital, and also give support with information, advice and signposting to other services that will help them in the future.
This role is to assist and coordinate the Wokingham Home from Hospital Service – ensuring that older people or people with a physical or sensory disability have practical and emotional support for a 2-3 week period following discharge from hospital.
