They are short term aftercare services for people when they return home from hospital, and can offer flexible short term practical help to assist with most day-to-day tasks, such as emotional support, food preparation, shopping, laundry, light domestic duties, and help with claiming benefits and form filling. Most services last for no more than a few weeks, and are provided for older people by different organisations such as Health services, Adult Social Care Services, voluntary agencies and commercial companies.
