Support Leaving Hospital

Dundee Home From Hospital Service

When you need more support than usual after returning home following a hospital stay, our volunteers can help you to get back on your feet and feel confident to remain independent. Our volunteers can provide support for a period of up to 12 weeks which will vary according to individual needs. Such needs may include practical help like accompanied shopping, making new connections with the local community or IT guidance and can also provide one to one or group exercise to improve functional muscle strength and balance. Our volunteers carry out Safe and Well checks each time that they visit.
