Derbyshire Home from Hospital Service provides practical support for vulnerable people leaving hospital, or those living at home but at risk of being admitted. The service is provided by a combination of staff and volunteers and is free of charge.
The service is for anyone who lives in Derbyshire (except the city) or is registered with a GP in Derbyshire and has limited support from family or friends.
The service offers things like:
- doing basic shopping
- making sure the home is warm and comfortable
- arranging key safes, community alarms or telecare
- collecting prescriptions
- signposting to other statutory, voluntary sector and community organisations.
Anyone can make a referral, including the patient themselves. Please call 01283 817417 Monday to Friday, 8.30am - 4.30pm (an answerphone is available outside these hours) or email email@example.com
