Home first’s main objective is to prevent people from staying in hospital for longer than they need to.
People recover better outside of hospital, but a service needs to be in place to prevent isolation and re-occurring hospital visits.
Under the service, individuals are supported with up to six weeks of free personalised care, which includes confidence building, companionship, and practical things like making sure the heating is working and the fridge is stocked.
“The staff were extremely supportive, and over a month or two I had started to regain my confidence and independence and had cut the visits down to once a week. I couldn’t have done without the help, and I know I wouldn’t be back on my own two feet so soon if it weren’t for the support.”
