Dundee Home From Hospital Service

When older people come out of hospital, they can need more intensive support than usual to help get them back on their feet. Royal Voluntary Service Home from Hospital services provides daily visits by volunteers for a period of up to six weeks, depending on the area they live in and what's needed. Our volunteer will also check that everything is okay at home (that the heating works, for example) before the end of hospital stay. And when the day comes to leave hospital our volunteer will be there to escort the older person home.\n\nThey can help with anything from making sure they have a healthy meal, walking the dog, helping with the garden or collecting shopping or prescriptions. They can provide a vital link between the older person and the outside world at a time when they are still recovering from an accident or illness.
