Home from hospital discharge scheme

Wales

The home from hospital discharge scheme helps patients leave hospital when their medical and nursing needs have been met. We provide them with emotional and practical support for a period of up to six weeks – immediately after discharge – to ease the transition from hospital to home. 

The service is open to all adult patients in the unitary authorities of Neath, Port Talbot and Carmarthenshire.

We also help patients (aged 18-65) referred from hospitals in the Swansea NHS Trust. We can support people for up to 12 weeks after they are discharged.

Mary’s story

Pensioner Mary Jenkins was facing a tough time alone at home – until our volunteer called round to help.

After a stroke landed him in hospital for ten months, Randolph wasn’t ready to face the world again – until we lent a hand.

Nobody enjoys the dentist, but Ann’s dental phobia meant she hadn’t had a check-up for 40 years – and she was in painful misery.

When disabled pensioner Maureen Gallagher needed extra support at home, the Red Cross stepped in to help.

After her leg was amputated, Lorna Williams was desperate to return home – but didn’t realise how difficult it would be coping alone.

Our volunteers are always willing to go the extra mile to help people – even if that means belting out a song or two.

Living with Parkinson’s disease can be difficult for Renate – so she was grateful when our volunteer called round to help.

Joan Plevin struggled so much at home that she moved 200 miles to be near her daughter – and found she had to rebuild her social life.

Almost 50 years ago, Dorothy Jennings witnessed our volunteers helping at the Aberfan disaster in Wales – and now we’re supporting her.

Independent living: help people at home

From giving people confidence to doing a weekly shop, our volunteers help people to live independently in their own home.
