Hospital support service

If you live in Stoke-on-Trent, our free service can adapt your home to meet your health needs so you can leave hospital – and once you’re home, we can support you to maintain your independence.

Repairs to make your home meet  your health needs before you leave hospital

Revival’s free* NHS-backed service can help you with a range of home repairs, minor adaptations and DIY-type jobs to make your home suitable for you to return to and live in.

Work we can do includes:

  • Fitting hand rails, stair rails or grab rails
  • Moving beds or other furniture
  • Minor adaptations
  • Supplying and fitting key safes – there is a charge for this.

On top of this, a support worker will assess your home for fall risks and fire risks, and advise you on how we can help to make things safer.

If you need help from other agencies who can help you return to your home and stay there, we will put you in touch with them too.

Support to help you maintain your independence at home

Once you’re at home, we can offer you further support to help you stay independent, and if you need it we can offer you extra support from Changes, a local mental wellbeing charity.

We can help you to:

  • Get to and from doctors’ appointments
  • Develop or adapt your practical day-to-day living skills
  • Manage your money, reduce your debts, and budget better
  • Find accommodation or set up a new home if you wish to move
  • Maintain or avoid losing your existing accommodation
  • Develop and maintain social relationships and be involved in the community
  • Get practical support with things like home improvements and disability technology
  • Get physical health, mental health or specialist services from other agencies.

You will also have a dedicated support worker who will work closely with you to make sure you are getting all the help you need to suit your own individual circumstances.
