Local Home from Hospital Care in Wakefield
Coming home from hospital can be a daunting experience, particularly if you need recuperation support in your home. The level of support you need can vary depending on the treatment you have had. It can range from intensive support to help with medication and personal care such as dressing and washing. Academy Care will exclusively tailor our services to provide you with the level of support that you need to recover at your own pace, in an environment where you feel comfortable and can be yourself. This means we can supplement local district nursing teams and community health teams that may already be helping you transition from hospital to home care.
Our Wakefield team liaise with your hospital team, your GP and your local community health teams to understand the level of care and support that you will need. We will also discuss how to help you access any financial support you are entitled to. Together, we will then craft a bespoke home care package that fits your needs and provides you with continued care and support as you recuperate on your own terms. Our professional and understanding hospital to home teams will be there for you every step of the way as you regain your health, independence and confidence in the comfort of your home, surrounded by the people you love.

Assistance with medical care
As you adjust to recovering at home, your home carer can liaise with your local GP and other medical care professionals involved in your treatment, so that they can assist you with medical treatments, follow-up hospital appointments, and keep track of daily medication and personal care routines associated with your recovery. Your carer will co-operate with any of your relatives or friends who are currently supporting you.
