Integrating Hospital & Community Care
My Care My Home provides an enhanced service that strives to deliver a truly integrated provision through collaborative working and joined up delivery. Settling individuals back into their local community is a crucial part of the Hospital to Home Service whether there is a requirement for a low-level support package, reablement or end of life care. When individuals are discharged from hospital they may require intensive support to help them get back on their feet.
What does the service offer?
What are the overall benefits?
This service prevents a considerable number of admissions and increases timely discharge from hospital thus reducing unnecessary prolonged stays in hospital.
At any one time there are a number of people in an acute bed, whose medical episode is complete, but who are unable to manage without support at home or in a residential setting. Rather than wait in hospital for a further assessment of their long term care needs or for the setting up of an appropriate package of care, the home from hospital service can ensure the delivery of a high quality and responsive service that speeds up discharge times or prevents inappropriate hospital admissions and improves outcomes for individuals with additional care needs.
