Hospital to Home – Evergreen Care Trust

Hospital to Home

If you do not have family or friends nearby, who are able to support you on discharge home from hospital, this service is for you.  With your permission the Evergreen volunteers will work with nursing or Social Work staff when planning your discharge home.  The volunteers will do all they can to make your homecoming as pleasant an experience as possible.  Volunteers will collect you from the ward and transport you home, or meet you at home and assist you with unpacking, seeing to your laundry and providing you with a nice hot drink and ensuring that you have essential groceries.  They may air the home, turn the heating on, make sure your bed is made and your home tidy and clean.  The volunteers will then make sure you are comfortably settled back home before leaving you safe and secure.  The following day your volunteers will return to visit you and ensure that all is still well.

If you know you are scheduled for hospital procedures or surgery and you need support to and from hospital, it is a good idea to arrange Hospital to Home Support ahead of time.
