Information to help you or a loved one when returning home from hospital

If you, or a loved one is due to return home after a stay in hospital, here is some information that might help. 


B&NES - Regaining your independence:

If you are over 18 and finding it difficult to do the day-to-day things you used to be able to do, we can help you find the support you need, including if you have just had a stay at hospital. 


RUH - Hospital@Home service:

Hospital@Home supports patients to return home where they will continue to receive care, rather than staying in hospital, even though they are medically unwell 


Age UK – Home from hospital

Are you worried about going home from hospital? If you are an in-patient in the RUH wards or A&E, St Martin’s Hospital or Paulton Hospital and you live in the Bath and North East Somerset area, are 18 years of age or over and are worried about how you will manage when you get home, we could help.


We Care Home Improvements:

Our Home from Hospital service facilitates a timely discharge by helping patients to return to a home which is safe, suitable and warm.
We can also carry out free home safety checks and arrange for work to be done when the patient is home, with the aim of reducing the risk of readmission. 


Curo - Support leaving Hospital:

Ready to leave hospital but can’t go home? We have tailored support and accommodation available. Curo’s Step-down from hospital accommodation is designed to offer a home from home for patients in Bath and North East Somerset who are ready to leave the hospital, but need to stay somewhere with a little more support.
