The Hospital 2 Home resource is designed to make it easier for health and social care professionals involved in hospital discharge to support older patients in returning home safely after a hospital stay and reduce the risk of readmission to hospital.
The resource contains information, advice, case studies and checklists to help health, housing and social care professionals provide the right care for older patients.
