Getting back on your feet

If you need short-term support, after an illness or a stay in hospital, there are services to help you 'get back on your feet'.

This could be in the hospital, a temporary stay in a care home or in your own home. 

You can have a care plan to guide your recovery, which will be worked out with you by a Health or Social Care worker. 

This support doesn't usually last for a long time, just long enough for you to start to live independently in your home again.
