When leaving hospital after surgery or a debilitating illness, many people are keen to return with home from hospital care, including post-operative care and convalescent care, in place as soon as possible. Here, in relaxed and comfortable surroundings, they are statistically more likely to recover faster and are removed from hospital acquired infections.

Our post-operative care and convalescent care services can be arranged in advance of your surgery or expected hospital discharge date to ensure that your home care is in place for when you need it.
