Hospital Discharge

Hospital Discharge and Housing Adaptations

If you're in hospital and you are unable to return home because of your ill health it may be possible for your home to be adapted to help you to stay there.  Housing adaptations can help you to stay mobile in and around your home.

Housing Adaptations can range from small items, such as grab rails and lever taps, to major alterations.

If you think that you could benefit from Housing Adaptations you will first have to be assessed and advised on how best to meet your needs in accordance with government guidelines. After this we will arrange for the work to be carried out.

If you have no place to return to when you are discharged from hospital you can register to apply for rehousing at Doncaster HomeChoice. We will work together with the hospital to ensure that suitable accommodation is available for you.

It is important to make contact as soon as possible to allow time for assessments to be completed and accommodation to be identified. Please contact housing options team and liaise with your hospital Occupational Therapist.
