Stoke-based home support provider works in partnership with local authority to review wellbeing support as part of new service mobilisation.
This month, Revival part of Honeycomb Group, have launched a new Wellbeing Support Service thanks to funding from Stoke-on-Trent City Council.
Launched on 1 December, the service aims to support people who are ready to leave hospital or people living in the community.
Stoke residents deemed as vulnerable by the new Integrated Discharge Support Hub based at Royal Stoke University Hospital, Adult Social Care, or the council’s emergency duty team will be referred for support.
The aim of the service is to help people live independently in their homes and communities for as long as possible. While helping to reduce hospital admissions and alleviate pressure faced by local NHS services.
The locality has given the trusted support provider, who has been delivering support services for over 30 years, the reigns to shape and develop the service based on their knowledge and experience. Merging their existing hospital discharge, safe and well, and wellbeing service.
They’ll work together to continually assess local need and adapt the service to suit.
Alongside the launch of the new service, Revival is also working in partnership with Stoke-on-Trent City Council and other voluntary providers to continually develop support services in the area.
