Registered Nurse Joins Home to Decide Service

Say a big hello to our latest Partner at Hilton Nursing Partners.

We welcome registered nurse Clare Gingell who joins our Home To Decide service which supports those returning home after a hospital stay.

Registered Nurse Joins Home to Decide Service

Leaving hospital and returning home can be a daunting prospect but with our partners, such as Clare, individuals can rely on a local nurse led team to provide support, planning and nursing care until they are back on their feet.

The aim of the Home to Decide service is to provide intensive, short term, person centred support for up to 14 days to establish whether individuals could in fact continue to live independently and, where residential care is required, to support the decision-making process, provide emotional support and assist in practical matters.

Our service supports the NHS when a patient is assessed as requiring a short-term bed prior to moving into residential care. Hilton provide the opportunity for the patient to return home instead. After assessment, the Hilton team, social services and the NHS work together to ensure the patient feels safe to return home and that their living environment is adapted to meet their requirements. Once home Hilton linked the GP and community health team into the partnership.
