Free home-based services

The HHS should examine ways to deliver these services for free, for people in their homes, and communicate this clearly to patients to make informed choices to return home.

Why the contribution is important

Some patients are reluctant to return to their homes, given that many of their needs are met without any financial impact, while they are inpatients. These costs include pharmaceuticals, meals, allied health services (eg. occupational therapy, physiotherapy, etc), and there is no travel expense for patients to access these services in hospital – many of these costs are prohibitive when patients return home.
