Carers in Bedfordshire’s support workers are here to help you when there is a hospital admission – whether that is the person you care for or yourself. Just let them know either by completing their form or phoning up. One of their support workers will then phone you to offer emotional and practical support.
You may need information, advice, practical and emotional support at a time when things can feel quite overwhelming. They know that supporting someone, both in hospital and out, can be distressing and a real strain for you in your caring role. A hospital admission can also lead to an increase in the amount of care needed, either in the short or long term.
Carers in Bedfordshire offer support such as:
- Offering you additional support during this period. We know this can be a scary time.
- Talking to hospital staff to ensure you get the information you need whilst the person you care for is in hospital.
- Providing information about discharge processes and procedures and continuing care.
