THE CHALLENGE

 

Discharge from hospital can be planned or advised at short notice ahead of a weekend. Hospitals are keen to fast track discharge for various reasons. Returning to your home without additional support is less than ideal at a time when you want to recuperate and regain your independence.

 

HOW CAN WE ASSIST?

 

Meet you at the hospital ahead of discharge and take instructions for preparing your residence, shopping for food supplies and running errands
Accompany you from hospital on your way back home
Assist you in the early hours / days post discharge by extending trusted companionship, provide personal care, liaise with family / Doctor / Pharmacy as well as community nurses, physiotherapists and other allied health professionals.
We are able to put in place nursing oversight either for set time/date or on as on call.
Typically, a single Companion will support you to regain independence within framework of a restorative care model.
Your companion will be only too happy to function as an extended member of your household or a trusted friend. Your companion will do as much or as little as you require. Companions can accompany you to outpatient appointments, take you around to see friends or run errands on your behalf.
