Going Home Project - Helping Older People Live Independently

The Going Home Project has helped older people deal with life-changing events and live independently following a stay in hospital.

The dedicated team provided practical advice and support on a one-to-one basis to help rebuild confidence and skills.

This involved helping older people participate in social and recreational activities, offering welfare advice and putting them in touch with local support services.

The project was run in partnership with Helena Extra, Mid Mersey Age UK, Big Lottery Fund, St Helens Council, Bridgewater Community Healthcare NHS Trust and St Helens and Knowsley Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust.
