When you are coming to the end of a stay in hospital, you will go through a process to make sure you get back on your feet as soon as possible.
I'm ready to leave hospital
If you were receiving support before going into hospital, it may be that restarting that support is what you need. In which case you will return home and this support will start again.
I need some additional support
Health and Social Care workers will take a joint approach to work out what is right for you.
This is generally offered as a short term service by the Intermediate Care Team (ICT), or the Short Term Assessment and Reablement Service (STARS).
If you have longer term needs, or if your needs are complex, you will be offered an assessment of needs to determine what those needs are and how they might be met by the East Riding of Yorkshire Council.
Getting my independence back
Short Term Assessment & Reablement Workers will visit you at home to help you for a short period while you regain your confidence and independence with everyday tasks such as:
- Assistance to help you up in the morning and back to bed at night
- Assistance with toileting
- Assistance with meal preparation
- Support with medication
- Assistance with shopping
I still need on-going support
After the programme, you will hopefully be back on your feet.
If you still require on-going support, Care Management Workers will assess what further support you will need. Depending on your circumstances, you may be referred for an assessment for one of the following;
- Aids, adaptations, and equipment
- Personal Budget
- Community Based Services
- Residential care
