For Hospital Discharge & Social Services Teams
The problems facing elderly people trapped in hospital awaiting an appropriate care package or placement have been well-documented, as has the resultant decline in their health and well-being. TimeFinders can arrange private care assessments and either source appropriate private care at home or find the right residential care, on a temporary or permanent basis, which meets their needs (see Choosing and Managing Care). By providing both practical and emotional support at this difficult time, we help patients make a successful move from hospital at the right time and settle them into their new care arrangements. The benefit to everyone is considerable: the patient’s individual care needs are responded to properly and in a timely manner and urgently required bed space and hospital resources are made available.
We offer free initial consultations and are very happy to discuss our proposals with patients’ family and legal and financial advisers.
