Hospital Support

We can support you if you or the person you care for is admitted to Bedford Hospital or Luton & Dunstable University Hospital.

Hospital Support

The Carers Lounges remain closed but we can still help.

Our support workers are still here to help you when there is a hospital admission – whether that is the person you care for or yourself. Just let us know either by completing the form here or phoning us. One of our support workers will then phone you to offer emotional and practical support.

You may need information, advice, practical and emotional support at a time when things can feel quite overwhelming. We know that supporting someone, both in hospital and out, can be distressing and a real strain for you in your caring role. A hospital admission can also lead to an increase in the amount of care needed, either in the short or long term. 

Use the form below to let us know when the person you care for is admitted to hospital.

  • We may be able to offer you additional support during this period. We know this can be a scary time.
  • We can also help you talk to hospital staff to ensure you get the information you need whilst the person you care for is in hospital.
  • And we can give you information about discharge processes and procedures and continuing care.
