Hospital Discharge Care in Wirral & Liverpool

Apollo Care offers care services for patients requiring assistance upon hospital discharge. It is important patients are not discharged from hospital unless proper care plans are put in place. Before you or your loved ones are discharged from hospital our advisor is able to put in place an appropriate care plan. The plan details the level of care you or your loved one requires upon discharge and the ideal times of day care is to be received. The care plan is not written in stone and our carer continues to monitor and alter the plan if necessary.

Means you return home quicker

The lack of an adequate discharge plan often means frail and/or elderly patients remain in hospital even when a return to home is possible. Our service puts in place an adequate discharge plan allowing patients to return home immediately. For many patients spending time in hospital is stressful. Returning home often speeds up the recovery process significantly. As the saying goes ‘there’s no place like home!’.

Our hospital discharge care service is ideal either at short notice or for planned hospital discharges. Typically discharge plans should begin on admission. Last minute planning is usually inferior and avoidable if possible.

We comply with NHS Trust requirements

We carry out a full assessment to ensure patients care needs are met. We work closely with the NHS under the ‘continuing care’ scheme. The care plan ensures patients living needs are met upon returning home. Above all patients’ worries are put at ease. Returning home after a prolonged hospital stay is worrying for most frail and elderly patients. Our service addresses the mental aspect of returning home in the care plan. Each NHS Trust in the Merseyside area maintains an individual discharge policy. Apollo Care is well aware of the nuances of each discharge policy and we work closely with ward manager to ensure the terms of each policy are met.

We plan transportation from the hospital to the patients home if necessary. We are able to take care of ‘discharge letters’ to GPs. Our advisor is authorised to ensure disability equipment is placed in the patient’s home.

What our service includes

Our service meets discharged patients personal care needs, including:

  • Washing and dressing
  • Household tasks such as shopping, cooking and cleaning
  • Companionship
  • Assistance with rehabilitation
  • Night care

Over time our patients feel confident to return to independent living. Our carers encourage our cared-for to get involved in common household task in order to stay mentally and physically fit. All of our hospital discharge care plans are tailored to suit our customers’ needs.
