Home from Hospital Service
AGE Concern Eastbourne
The Home from Hospital Service provides emotional and short term practical support, (shopping, light cleaning, escort to local appointments), initially for three weeks, for people aged 55 and over when they are first discharged from hospital.
You will get an initial assessment where the assessor will explore social networks, financial support, mobility, befriending, home adaptations and un-met need.
A large part of the service is to link individuals with community groups and support networks, so that the client continues to get the help they need when the home from hospital services has come to an end.
The service covers a large area including Alfriston, Ripe, Hellingly, Hailsham, Polegate, Pevensey Bay and Seaford
