Care and support when you leave hospital

Leaving hospital after an accident, illness or surgery can be a worrying time for you and your family.

You might be concerned about how you will manage to do the everyday things that you did before you went into hospital. You may have spoken to different health and social care workers, and have had a lot of information to take in.

Please read the guide below which will help you and your family to understand the different types of social care that you may have been offered. It also explains how these services are paid for. 

This guide applies to anyone who lives in Redcar and Cleveland and is aged over 18
