The Carers’ Hospital Discharge Project
by Carers Of West Dunbartonshire ( Health & Social Care Services, Support Network )
Discharge from hospital is a process that carers should be involved in from the earliest point. It is important that all parts of the patient’s support system (the carer, the hospital, primary and community care services) work together to achieve the best outcome for both the cared for person and the carer.
There are many ways in which the project can help you, including:
- by providing an advocacy role to help put your views across
- by carrying out a carers’ assessment with you
- by giving you information and helping to access you or the person you care for to services
- by providing ongoing support
