About the role

The role holder is responsible for providing a dedicated service to support a safe and timely hospital discharge with proactive solutions

This is a responsive service requiring someone who is able to juggle multiple priorities and keep them moving to enable people to get people home.

The purpose of the post is to work proactively with clients primarily but not exclusively older people, in both hospital and community settings, to improve their ability to live as independently as possible, for as long as possible, in their homes. This will be achieved by working within the existing local processes and pathways for health and social care, thereby identifying older people in priority need and providing individual clients with a coherent person-centered approach in which their specific needs are seamlessly considered, recognised, and responded to. The principal focus of the service is to provide bespoke home improvements and adaptations that support independence, however there are further outcome requirements related to prudent healthcare, new technology and access to services. Key to the approach is identifying with Health & Social Care partners those in critical need; ensuring effective service access to beneficiaries and tailoring interventions to the specific need. To ensure a seamless service for clients being discharged from hospital or prevention of admission to hospital.
