Leaving hospital

 

Think family and friends first

It’s normal to be a bit apprehensive about being home after a stay in hospital. Sometimes a chat with a loved one can be reassuring so if you are worried about anything once you get home, ring a family member or a friend and let them know how you are feeling.

Could you ask a neighbour of local community group for help?

The local community can be an excellent source of help and many neighbourhoods now have local groups or co-ordinators who can connect you to someone who can help out.
