Age UK Milton Keynes runs a free service called Hospital Aftercare, which offers support to older people for up to six weeks after they leave hospital. This includes practical help with transport, food shopping and collecting prescriptions, as well as emotional support. They can also help you get in touch with relevant health and social care professionals.
Their team is based at the hospital so they can visit you on the ward before you leave. Their telephone number is 01908 996 073. More information is also available on their website which can be found here.
You can also download a guide to help you understand the process of being discharged from hospital, the decisions you might be asked to make about support you need when you leave hospital and how you can access the range of services that are available.
