Leaving Hospital

If you do not have anywhere to live after you are being discharged from hospital you should tell the hospital nursing staff as soon as possible.   The hospital discharge team should offer you help and support around your options, and will refer you to other agencies for advice if this is needed. 

If you have a home but it needs to be adapted, the hospital will refer you to an Occupational Therapist to assess your needs.   They may assist with specialist equipment, applying for a Disabled Facilities Grant for your property to be adapted and help you get the support you need.

If you are going to be homeless, the council will be able to offer you an appointment for a full assessment of your circumstances please click here to complete our homelessness advice form.  We will work together with you, and any support agencies, to prevent you from becoming homeless.  If your homelessness cannot be prevented we will offer you help to resolve your homelessness situation.
