Our priority in Shropshire is to ensure people can remain independent and safe and remain in their own homes for as long as possible especially when returning home from hospital.
We offer advice and support to help you to regain your confidence when you return home. Integrated Community Services (ICS) may carry out an assessment to see if the support they have to offer would be of benefit to you.
Whether you are returning home from hospital with support having been organised or you wish to look at what is available, below is some useful information you will need in order to aid your recovery.
If you are due to go into hospital and you are in receipt of services, you will need to let the agencies which support you know in plenty of time so they suspend their support until you are home again. You will also need to let the Council know if you are or are likely to be in hospital for more than 4 weeks, along with notifying the Department for Works and Pensions. More information about how your benefits maybe affected while in hospital can be found in our Money Matters category on the left.
