Information for GPs, hospital doctors, psychiatrists, social workers, district nurses and occupational therapists.
If you feel that one of your patients may benefit from 24 hour live-in care, we are able to assist with this. We are an agency headed up by an extremely well-qualified and experienced team of professionals with a background in the health care sector, social services within the NHS and Local Authority, nursing and live-in care. We are fully registered and insured and can assure you of utmost professionalism, care and reliability at all times.
As a result of our experience, we are familiar with working with a wide range of health and social care professionals, as well as with the process of funding care via Direct Payments. In addition to this, we have frequently been required to play a part in assisting patients to be discharged home from hospital. Under these circumstances we always respond promptly because we understand how important it is that people do not remain in hospital a moment longer than necessary.
Our process would include fully overseeing the entire transition process for a client: if they are currently in hospital, we will visit the client there and liaise with ward staff to support the discharge process. We would gather information from a variety of sources, discussing the discharge requirements with the patient, family and ward staff to ensure that our carers are best placed to meet the needs of the patient and that we are able to match the most appropriate carer to the individual. From there we will liaise directly with the family to finalise arrangements. Where appropriate, we will visit the client’s home prior to discharge to ensure that the transition from ward to community is a seamless as possible. In other settings, we will visit the client accordingly, and liaise with the relevant personnel.
