British Red Cross - Home Support Service

Being discharged after your hospital stay can be a stressful experience, especially when you don't have the means to get home.

If you do need help returning home from hospital, we'll collect you and make sure you have everything you need for your first 24 to 72 hours back at home.

We’ll also provide practical and emotional support, whether that's stocking the fridge, feeding the cat or a just cup of tea and chat.

We may then provide up to 12 weeks of support to help you recover as quickly as possible.

We're a group of local residents who run, walk, or cycle to help out community projects and older people in Portsmouth.

From hanging curtains for Mr H because he can't manage it on his own, to shovelling a tonne of compost for the Food Growers Group so they can grow vegetables - every GoodGym session is different.

MHA Live at Home

Live at Home was established in 1989 by MHA, a charity providing care homes, housing and support services for older people throughout Britain.

Over 50 Live at Home Schemes now operate across the UK, enabling older people to maintain their independence and live more fulfilled lives.

These services aim to relieve social isolation and encourage older people to take an active part in the communities in which they live.

Such needs may include practical help like accompanied shopping, making new connections with the local community or IT guidance and can also provide one to one or group exercise to improve functional muscle strength and balance. Our volunteers carry out Safe and Well checks each time that they visit.
