Home and Living Service for People Stuck in Hospital

Home

We’re thrilled to announce that the Hospital to Home service previously offered by the Summer Foundation will now be available through the Housing Hub! Since 2020, the Hospital to Home service has supported over 300 people stuck in hospital to discharge and achieve their home and living preferences.

This free service, which adopts a rights-based approach, is designed to: 

  • Search for housing options for NDIS participants in hospital to support discharge
  • Prevent young people with disability being discharged to aged care
  • Assist health teams and supporters to understand the types of housing available, and the eligibility and evidence requirements

This service is philanthropically and government funded, and is completely free to use. 

To be eligible for the Hospital to Home service, a person must:

  1. Be an inpatient in an acute or sub-acute hospital setting
  2. Be an NDIS participant, or likely to be (ARF submitted)
  3. Require support to find housing options in order to be discharged from hospital

Make a referral here

Don’t forget that we also have our Home and Living Specialists service available and our Aged Care to Home service.



How does the Hospital to Home Service work?

The Hospital to Home service provides support by:

  • Facilitating a discussion with the person’s health team, their support coordinator, formal guardian (if appointed), and other relevant stakeholders
  • Articulating the person’s housing needs and preferences and their support needs
  • Creating a Tenant Summary Profile, which can be used in a search for housing
  • Working with health teams to gather evidence to support favourable and timely NDIA decisions on funding applications, including reviewing and providing advice on supporting documentation
  • Completing an innovative housing search for potential interim and/or long-term housing options, based on the person’s housing needs and preferences
  • Presenting suitable housing options to the person, their health team and supports

If you have any questions about the Hospital to Home Service or you are unsure whether a patient is eligible for referral, please call us on 1300 817 794 or email us at hospitaltohome@housinghub.org. You can also download this flyer to share with your networks.
