Help us get your loved ones home

Graphic: Help us get your loved one home

Published: 12 January 2022

If your loved one is ready to leave hospital, your and your family’s support can help them to return home more quickly and stay well.

You can help by:

  • Bringing clean, comfortable clothes for your loved one
  • Providing transport to take them home
  • Making sure their home is warm enough
  • Stocking their home with essentials such as food, drink and medicines

Helping your loved one to return home will help us care for those people who are acutely unwell. Simple arrangements such as checking in, helping with meals and supporting with daily tasks mean that people can get home more quickly and will be supported to stay well.
