Hospital Discharge Care
Careful Choices work with hospital discharge teams, local authorities and families across the UK, to provide full-time live in care for when a person leaves the hospital once they are sufficiently recovered and have a care package in place to help them remain independent at home.
Arrangements before you leave hospital
Before an individual can be discharged from the hospital, their care needs must be assessed so that any support or care services that they need can be arranged before the person leaves the hospital.
Preparing to leave hospital
- Any extra help is arranged, such as visits from a district nurse or paid home help
- Any equipment is fitted, such as a raised toilet seat
- Any home adaptations are made, like grab rails in the bathroom
