Back on your feet
At certain times in your life you might need a lot of help for a short period of time. With our partners at the Clinical Commisioning Group, Luton & Dunstable Hospital, and local health services, we’ve developed a Meet & Greet service for people returning home after a stay in hospital or respite care.
Meet & Greet helps people settle back in at home and our workers make sure that the cupboards are full, beds are made, and everything is in place for the best possible recovery. This service lasts for up to six weeks and is designed to help older people resolve any issues, practical or emotional, that come up in that time. We also provide assistance with making sure future appointments are kept and everything else in the care plan is working properly.
This service has been very successful in reducing the amount of people who are re-admitted to hospital!
We now offer a subsidised visiting footcare service in partnership with a fully accredited podiatrist. Whilst this service has proved very popular with older people we receive no external funding for this. Unfortunately this means there is normally a short wait from making an enquiry to getting an appointment.
If you would like more information about either of these services please contact us.
