82% of respondents thought this new service sounded a good idea with 30% saying they know someone who would have benefitted from this service had it been available earlier.
We then asked what your preference would be if you were well enough to leave hospital but were physically unable to go home, the responses can be seen in the table below:
a. Temporarily live in a care home where staff provide care and meals 24 hours a day 17.9%
b. Temporarily live somewhere that resembles your own home setting , for example an independent apartment where care and support comes to you when needed 74.3%
c. Stay in hospital until you are able to go home or find somewhere new to live 7.8%
75% of respondents said they would also like to see this type of provision available for self-funded respite.
Feedback has been added to the overall consultation results and shared with the Board. Some parts will be implemented into the scheme.
