The hospital will discuss arrangements while you are in hospital. You can start to plan as soon as you have spoken to the doctor. You will need to consider how long you will be in hospital and if you will need support to continue to meet commitments at home such as looking after a pet. When you are discharged you can receive help with getting home and settling in. This can include making sure the equipment you need for your recovery is at home waiting for you and also that you have essential groceries such as bread and milk. The ward staff will help to make these arrangements with voluntary organisations and social services where appropriate. PAVS can also assist you to find voluntary services that can help.
