How Can We Improve The Transition Of Patients From Hospital To Home?
Over the last ten years, episodes of adults aged 65 and over being admitted to hospital has increased by over 2 million, equating to 62% of hospital beds occupied by those in this age bracket.

In combination with the vast amount of people being admitted to hospital, there is also an estimated cost of £820m to the NHS for those who no longer require acute treatment but have not been discharged.

Substantial cuts to budgets have hit the adult social care system hard and with that, occupational therapists (OTs), who are at the heart of transitioning patients from hospital to home, are finding themselves too stretched to meet demand.

Wellbeing Check Service
It’s surprising how many people can find that a day passes by and they haven’t spoken to anyone. You know your relatives care deeply about you, but other pressures can get in the way. They may be struggling to balance work commitments and demands from children, making it difficult to ring.

With our Wellbeing Check Service, you’ll receive a 20 minute phone call once a week by a designated member of our friendly helpline team.

We’ll ask you how you’re feeling and generally get to know you. You can talk to us about anything you like, your hobbies, how your week is going and about any concerns you may have, the choice is yours. Chatting together can often reveal problems you are facing, perhaps a household chore is becoming a bit difficult, or the heating is playing up. We can offer you advice and recommendations, or if you wish our helpline team can keep nominated family up-to-date.

You might have some things you’d rather not worry your family about and would prefer just to talk it through with us. And that’s OK too.

If we identify any health or wellbeing concerns that we feel need further investigation, we’ll suggest you contact your GP or another healthcare professional, or our medical helpline if you receive this service. And if you choose, we’ll make sure your family contact is kept fully up-to-date.

Safe Home Assessment Services



https://www.ppptakingcare.co.uk/enhanced-support/safe-home-assessment/
Living independently in the home you love is often top of the list for many people, especially as you get older. Feeling safe and secure can make a big difference to you, and the way you live.

With our Safe Home Assessment service, a trained assessor will visit your home to ensure that you’re living in an environment that is safe and suitable, and that all your care and support needs are met.

We can normally arrange a visit within days which means you are not reliant upon where you live or time constraints that may be in place with local authorities or other organisations.
