Hull Churches Home from Hospital
The Home from Hospital Service is a registered charity which for 25 years has provided support services to adults being discharged from acute trust hospitals or community step down beds. They also provide support to carers who require routine time out or to people with an end of life diagnosis.
Recently to extend their methods of support the Home from Hospital Service have acquired an old building which is in the process of being renovated. The Home from Hospital Service would like to increase their offer of support to people who feel isolated and lonely by providing them with a safe space to go to meet friends and participate in activities. Whilst visiting the centre they want to share information so that people are more aware and can be “on guard” against scams and distraction attempts. They will introduce them to The Hull Neighbourhood Network Home Security Box and demonstrate their own free doorbells with inbuilt cameras, which are easy to install and are an excellent safety feature.
They also intend to have presentations from organisations to help to educate their clients and this will include visits from the police to talk about security and telephone and online scams. Several of their clients have had their homes broken into whilst they have been receiving care in hospital. They are not always aware of the dangers of crime and often do not feel safe when they return home from hospital. The Tribune Trust are pleased to be able to support The Home from Hospital Serrvice to provide their additional crime prevention methods.
