Age UK Home from Hospital service

Published: 15th June, 2011

   Have you or are you receiving hospital treatment either as an in patient or are attending an outpatients department?

 Would you, where possible, prefer to stay in your own home to prevent an untimely hospital admission?

 If you could access some practical support such as shopping and paying bills, having your prescription picked up from the GP, medicines collected from the pharmacist would this provide you with effective support?  If you were to have social visits for companionship, could any of these support activities help you in the rebuilding of your confidence whilst promoting your independence during your recovery period?

Would you like to access this free service, which will provide support for a few hours a week, for a period of up to 6 weeks?

 Do you live in south Shropshire?

Have you already celebrated your 60th birthday?
