Before you or your loved ones are discharged from hospital our Care Manager 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.
Apollo Care offers care services for clients requiring assistance upon hospital discharge. It is important people are not discharged from hospital unless proper care plans are put in place.
Means you return home quicker
The lack of an adequate discharge plan often means frail and/or elderly clients remain in hospital even when a return to home is possible. Our service puts in place an individualised discharge plan allowing patients to return home immediately. For many people 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 should be avoided if possible.
What our service includes
Our service meets discharged patients personal care needs, including:
- Washing and dressing
- Household tasks such as shopping, cooking and cleaning
- Assistance with rehabilitation
- Night care
Many of our clients feel confident to return to independent living. Our carers encourage our clients to get involved in common household tasks in order to stay mentally and physically fit. All of our hospital discharge care plans are tailored to suit our clients’ needs.
