At North Haven, we ensure the value of person-centred care and support is delivered to all the people we care and support for, including people with cognitive impairments such as Alzheimer’s disease. Many people with this progressive condition prefer to remain in their own home for as long as practicably possible, rather than move to residential care or nursing homes.
Helping you following discharge from hospital
North Haven’s Hospital to Home Support can help ease this return home in several ways. From carrying out the everyday practicalities of running a home to simply being there as a means of social or emotional support during those first few days or weeks. The support North Haven can provide depends totally upon your individual needs. We can contact you either at home or while in hospital to first discuss the support required.
Some of the ways we can help:
- Paying bills
- Visiting you on the ward
- Light domestic chores
- Collecting prescriptions & prompting medication
- Social & emotional support
- Being there for you when you come home
- Food preparation
These are just a few suggestions. You tell us what you need and together we design a plan that suits you.
