Being Discharged from the hospital?

Returning home after being discharged from hospital is a happy time for some but is quite daunting for those who are returning home alone. Older adults who have had a recent significant health event are likely to be at risk of social isolation following hospitalisation.  Often, patients are re-admitted less than a few weeks after discharge due to loneliness, severe anxiety, mistakes in medication, poor nutrition and dehydration.

 

Having additional support in place during this time can alleviate any stress or worries you have whilst also ensuring a quicker and smoother transition to full recovery for your loved one.
