“Why not home, why not today?”
Sometimes it can be hard getting back to yourself following a spell in hospital. The Home First service is a time-limited, short-term service that can enable you to stay well at home and regain or retain your independence.
The service provides a personalised programme of support, tailored to your individual goals, working on your strengths to enable you to get back to independent living. This may include elements of:
- Rehabilitation to help you regain your physical strength
- Reablement to help you regain daily living skills and confidence to live independently in your own home.
Home First’s principles are based around being able to maintain the ability to live in your own home independently, connected to your community and able to reach your full potential. This might be through physical recovery after a period of illness or injury, supporting you with finances so you are able to stay living at home, or accessing work or voluntary opportunities.
To contact the Home First teams, please follow the referral process by contacting Gateway to Care on 01724 297000 who will help put you in touch with the right service.
