Outreach to our Housebound Patients
We really try to engage with our housebound patient’s needs.
We have a nurse who has lots of links in the community to enable any isolated patients to engage in their community via lunch clubs, exercise, social cafes and even things like referring into housebound library services or befriending projects.
Our housebound patients receive home visits for their Chronic Disease reviews from Practice Nurses which means they receive a good quality of care equal to that of our less isolated patients.
We have offered housebound patients 1-1 art session via Arts Council Funding; this involves 1-1 tuition of patients who are housebound. The tuition is delivered by an art teacher in the patient’s own home.
Each patient has a special materials pack developed to suit their individual needs
Sessions are held in the patient’s own home over a period of 6 to 8 weeks. During this time period they are given guidance and support, this has enabled them to gain confidence and actually exhibit some of their work!
