We can help you to cope at home by putting in place some extra support to meet your needs until you are able to manage for yourself.

How it works

You can refer yourself to Home from Hospital or you can be referred by a relative, friend, carer, health professional or social worker (as long as they have the consent of the individual).
An experienced support worker will visit you at home to carry out a detailed holistic assessment to identify your support needs. For example they may:

  • Support to access transport home from hospital
  • Complete a holistic assessment
  • Shop for basic supplies

Your support worker can help you access a range of services provided by Age UK West Cumbria.

The level and length of support will be dependent on the needs of the individual.
