If you’re returning from hospital, we make sure you have everything you need for your first 24 to 72 hours back at home.
We may then provide up to 12 weeks of support depending on the level of help you need. Please see page 2 below for more details by clicking in the bottom left corner to turn the page.Red Cross
The Red Cross services are based around all the local hospitals. Our friendly, caring teams provide free, confidential and practical support to people in the first few weeks after discharge from hospital or after an illness. Staff and volunteers visit people in thier own homes to help them regain their confidence and get back to normal life. We can also offer support to carers who may need a few hours’ break to meet friends or go shopping.
Please call 01270 255141 ext 2789 or email: Leightonsupportathome@redcross.org.uk
We also operate AccessEquip which provides transport for people who are unable to travel to an independent living centre or retail shop to select equipment due to restricted mobility or lack of transport.
This service covers Nantwich and the surrounding rural areas, provided they are within the Cheshire East boundary. For help with accessing equipment please contact us:
